Going through the termination of your marriage is a terrible thing. Besides, divorce will most certainly have a great impact on your future. You will definitely benefit from learning more about your divorce records and how they may affect your life. Find out what information they contain, who can access them and what control you have over this information.

Public and Private Details

Your marital status is important for all sorts of things from social security to opening a bank account. That is why the fact that you are divorced is openly disclosed to the public. The publically available divorce records contain your divorce certificate. This certificate states your name and that of your former spouse and when and where you have terminated your marriage legally. This certificate can be accessed by any member of the public. Still, a certified copy will be provided only to you, upon request.

The divorce decree is the formal legal document confirming the termination of the marriage and providing complete details on the alimony, property division, custody, visitation and child support. It may or may not be available in the public records. This depends on the legislation in your state. The court records including sworn statements and other legal and financial documents are not available to the public.

Accessibility

Any member of the public can access the divorce records which are publically available. The ones which are not public can be accessed only by the two former spouses and their attorneys. It is important to note that a member of the public who checks your record does not have to disclose their name. Even if they have to show an ID at the office of the respective agency keeping the records, there will be no record made of this particular check.

In most cases, employers are required to inform job applicants of their intention or practice to perform background checks which include searching the vital records. Often, they have to ask for the consent of the job applicants as well. This should give you peace of mind that that you will not be discriminated against based on marital status. In general, such discrimination is highly unlikely.

Performing a Search

It is a good idea to go over your divorce records to check precisely which details are available to the general public and which are not. This will certainly give you peace of mind. If there are inaccurate details, you will be able to arrange the correction of the information.

The fact that some documents in the divorce records are public should not have a negative impact on your career or personal life.
