Georgia State was named after King George II of Great Britain and was the fourth state to ratify the United States Constitution on January 2, 1788. It is located in the southeastern part of United States and Atlanta is its capital of the state. Georgia is known as the Peach State and the Empire State of the South. According to the United States Census Bureau, the population of Georgia was 9,815,210 in the year 2011. The state is bordered on the south by Florida, on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and South Carolina, Alabama on the West and on the north by Tennessee and North Carolina. Georgia government provides accurate records and data concerning vital records including Georgia Divorce Records.

Atlanta, which is located in northern central Georgia at the Eastern Continental Divide, has been the capital city of Georgia since 1868. It is the most populous city with just over 420 residents in 2010. Georgia is the only state with Sole Commissioner Government counties and its constitution provides all counties and cities with home rule authority and so the county commissions have considerable power to pass legislation within their county as a municipality would. Georgia State is based on the separation of legislative, executive and judicial power. Georgia consists of 159 counties and counties in Georgia have their own elected legislative branch, usually called the Board of Commissioners, which usually also has executive authority in the country.

The State Vital Records office conducts a search to verify the occurrence of a divorce, but cannot issue a record. State office is open during weekdays from 8:00 am until 4:30pm. Certified copies of divorce decrees are only available from the Clerk of the Superior Court in the country where the divorce was granted. Requester must provide the following information such as the full name of the husband and wife, date of divorce, place of divorce, the number of copies requested, signed request and the appropriate fee.

The state law of Georgia demands payment to be received first before a record or a service can be provided. Prepayment of the fee is necessary at the time the service is requested and fees are not refundable. For the search fee and confirmation of divorce event fee cost $10.00 and for Multi-year search fee cost $10.00. Payment may be paid through certified check or money order, sending cash in the mail is proscribed.

The Superior Court is the place where divorces are filed and discussed. Divorce cases may take months and years depending on the complexity of the case. Either of the couple or both couples may file a divorce case with petition or complaints regarding your marriage problems, custody arrangements, state of the shared assets and debts and describes your current living situation. The court always gives favor to the children on what is best for them in these situations. The parent who can meet the need of the children will win the legal custody. The court may also grant joint legal custody and joint physical custody.

Obtaining a copy of Divorce Decrees needs to write a request letter or go to the Vital Statistics Office in the state or area where the event occurred.

To request for extra copy or copies, another request letter should be written or got to the court clerk office and request a copy.
