Michigan 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 Michigan divorce records, the Vital Records Office has divorce records that date as far back as 1897.
Michigan state law MCL 333.2882(1) states that divorce records are considered open to the public and thus can be accessed by anyone.
