Q: How much do divorce records cost?ORDER NOW

The cost of a divorce record is $10.00 per copy.  If you choose to order online through Vital Records, a $5.00 standard processing fee and a $1.85 non-refundable identity verification fee will be charged, in addition to the cost of any expedited shipping options you select. If no record is found or no copy is made, state law requires that we keep $10.00 for a search fee. The processing fee for online orders is also non-refundable.
