West Virginia 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. In West Virginia, certified copies of divorce records are available primarily through the Chancery Side of the Clerk of Circuit Court in the place where the divorce was granted. However, the Vital Registration Office, which maintains birth, death, and other records, does keep a registry of divorces that dates back to 1968. With this registry, the state can search for divorce records and often provide unofficial confirmation of the basic facts of a divorce record.
