Connecticut Divorce Records
Divorce is never a happy occasion but it is a part of our reality. Divorce is longer the big taboo it was in the earlier days.
In this day of an age, genealogical researchers often try to follow divorce records in their journey.
Divorce records not only provide you with information on both parties involved and can provide you with information regarding any other relatives of either individual and their offspring as well as ancestors,
but it can also provide information on the married couple such as financial records and the reason the marriage was dissolved.
Divorce records in Connecticut are only available from the town clerk of the place where the divorce records were filed.
In some ways, this makes it easier to find the information you need because a town clerk will have records of all divorces in that county since it first became possible to legally dissolve a marriage.
The fact is Connecticut has allowed divorces since the earliest periods of settlements, and you can get a copy of any one of those decrees if you know where to look.
