If you’re interested in performing a background search on someone in your life or business, you should know that the Vital Records section of the Colorado Public Health and Environment can help you with the search and provide copies of some legal documents. You can access Colorado divorce records by completing an application, specifically designed to gather information about a decree you want or need. There is a required $17 search fee (payable by credit card, check or money order) for a certified copy of the dissolution of marriage certificate. You may want a certified copy if you’re dealing with establishing proof that you were actually divorced, need a passport or many other reasons. Some people look through divorce records to find information on a person’s past and want to know if someone involved in their or a loved one’s life is telling the truth. When you complete the application, send it along with the fee to:
Colorado Dept. of Public Health and Environment
Vital Records Dept.
4300 Cherry Creek Dr., So.
Denver, CO 80246
Phone: (303) 692-2200
This Colorado department can provide you with divorce decrees that occurred between1851 until the present day, except for those that occurred between 1940 and 1967. Those divorce records must be obtained by the particular county in which the divorce took place. One requirement of the state is that you also provide your own personal information and the reason why you want a copy of the decree and you must also sign the application form or the state won’t provide the information. Those who can obtain the divorce record information include relatives of at least one of the people on the decree such as siblings, parents, creditors and legal representatives. You won’t receive the bulk of information that can be found in a divorce record because of the enormous amount of data involved and because some information is protected by privacy acts of the state.
To bypass the technicalities of a state-based divorce records search, you can use the services of a private Internet site. You’ll likely receive much more data than you would from a state search because of the powerful nature of the search engines and databases that these sites use. You’ll receive a report (usually within minutes) that’s accurate and up-to-date and that you can easily read. You don’t have to worry about providing your personal information or that others can find out who requested the search because your data is encrypted. All you need to do is provide some basic data about the Colorado divorce record you’re searching for and it will be delivered to you in a timely manner.
