Divorce – Dissolution of Marriage
Need information on Apostilles?
The divorce you are requesting must have occurred in Florida.
After the divorce has been recorded, the Clerk of Court sends a Report of Dissolution of Marriage to Florida Dept. of Health, Bureau of Vital Statistics. If the divorce was recently granted, it may take up to sixty (60) days to be received by this office from the Clerk of Court. The divorce decree and other court papers remain on file at the Clerk’s office. If the current dissolution of marriage is less than sixty (60) days from the date of this application and you need evidence of the divorce for legal purposes, you may wish to contact the county where the Dissolution of Marriage was granted.
“Once you have your divorce decree, we do the Apostille process”
The reports dating from June 6, 1927 to the present. Any divorces prior to June 6, 1927 are obtainable from the Clerk of Court in the County where the divorce was granted. If you need the judgment, contact the Clerk of Court in the county where the divorce was granted.
