    If you are aware of the county where the filing took place, you can go directly to the court's website and see how to order them. Court records are generally public records. Vital records, specially official certificates are not as easy to obtain as they come with some restrictions depending on the agency. However, court records are under general open records laws and should be available to anyone requesting them. Note that not all court records are available, such as juvenile records, certain court records can be restricted from public view, however, divorce records should be readily open.

    Florida’s department health issues divorce abstracts from 6/1927 to today. The clerk office in the county where the divorces occurred has records prior to that period. If you need the entire record, judgment, divorce decree or other documents of the dissolution, you will also need to go to the county clerk, as the department of health only provides abstract reports (of divorces earlier than sixty days). Requests for this document are without restrictions, which means that anyone can request them for a fee of four dollars. You will need the document: APPLICATION FOR DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE REPORT (DIVORCE OR ANNULMENT)GRANTED IN FLORIDA. To access this form, click on the link: Florida Marriage Records above under the Florida Free Public Records Directory part of this page (at the top of the page), from there, a menu to the left on the health department's webpage lists a divorce link that will take you to the form.
