Divorce Records for Genealogy Research
Divorce Records can provide a gold mine of information for genealogists. A place and date of marriage, a wife's maiden name, the names and ages of any children, and the reason for the divorce are examples of details that can be given. This guide provides information about where to check for Connecticut divorce records.
For current records, please contact the Clerk's Office at the location where the divorce occurred. See the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch website's Where to File page for contact information. See also the FAQ section about getting a copy of a divorce record.
