Illinois 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. For Illinois divorce records, the county where the proceedings were filed is the only place to go. The Illinois Department of Public Health, however, also possesses an indexing of the records that go as far back as 1962. For anything previous than 1962, you need to contact the county clerk office directly.
