Dallas County Receiving a Copy of Marriage and Divorce Records

Under Alabama state law, determining whether or not someone is currently married or has ever been married, as well as if they have ever been divorced, is considered to be public knowledge. This means that, unlike many other official records for Dallas County, Alabama, getting ahold of the marital status of an individual is an easy and straightforward process.

Receiving a copy of a marriage certificate or a divorce certificate in Dallas County, Alabama is also easy because the same institution maintains all of the Vital Records, of which marriage and divorce records are a part, for the entire state. That group is the Alabama Department of Public Health, and, provided that you are willing to pay a small fee, you can access these records at any time.
