Barbour County Marriage & Divorce Records

In the state of Alabama, the type of records that are known as Vital Records are split into two types: those that may be accessed by any member of the public for any reason, and those records that may only be accessed by certain privileged individuals. The two types of vital records that are available, by law, to anyone in Alabama whom pays a small fee, are marriage and divorce records.

By utilizing the proper channels, the marital status, as well as full divorce records (including court decisions relating to the divorce proceedings), can be found by any citizen of Alabama, including those in Barbour County. It is important to note however that because the Alabama Department of Public Health, whom handles all of the vital records of Alabama, must charge a fee for these records, they are not published online.
