MSDH's Vital Records office does not maintain divorce records. A five-year search of county divorce indexes is available for January 1, 1926 to June 30, 1938, and for January 1, 1942 to present for a fee of $17 . A five-year search is available to locate the county where the divorce was granted, the book, and the page number in the Chancery Clerk's office where it was recorded. The Chancery Clerk's office will need to be contacted directly in order to obtain a certified copy of the divorce decree.
Note: Though required by law, all divorce records are not on file with the Office of Vital Records.
