Alabama Marriage and Divorce Records Search
Coosa County Marriage and Divorce Records
If you have spent any time looking for legal records, jail records, or court records in Alabama, then you may have discovered that finding records in a timely manner can be extraordinarily difficult. This is partially due to privacy laws and regulations, but also because the organizations that manage these records are disparate, and many do not have an online presence. This is not the case for Vital Records in Alabama thankfully.
There are two reasons for this. The first is because all Vital Records, which include marriage records and divorce records, as well as birth and death records, are maintained by the Alabama Department of Public Health - and only them. The second is that some Vital Records, such as marriage records and divorce certificates, are freely available to anyone in Alabama at any time so long as you are willing to pay a small fee.
You can access the online documentation for obtaining marriage records at the corresponding ADPH website, which is located here: http://adph.org/vitalrecords/index.asp?id=1562. The divorce version of this page is located here: http://adph.org/vitalrecords/index.asp?id=1561.
In addition to providing more details on how to access these Vital Records, these pages also provide a link to a downloadable application for marriage records or divorce records.
A final note is that obtaining a copy of all Vital Records costs $15.00 for the first copy, and $6.00 for each additional copy.
