Etowah County Marriage and Divorce Records

If you have ever tried to look for almost any kind of official record in Alabama, whether it’s a criminal record, an arrest record, or even just court records, then you have probably discovered this to be a surprisingly difficult process. Limited online presences, a confusing web of whether or not it is legal to access a particular type of document, and a host of privacy concerns make accessing legal documents a pain. However, that’s just not the case with marriage records and divorce records for Etowah County – or any other county in Alabama.

This is mostly because under Alabama state law, the marriage records and divorce records of any person(s) in the state are considered to be public information. This means that at any time, you can look up the marital status of anyone else in the state – for any reason.

The second reason for this is that, unlike most other types of records, all Vital Records in Alabama – including marriage and divorce records for Etowah County – are maintained by the Alabama Department of Public Health. Provided that you are willing to pay them the required $15.00 fee for the first copy of any such record, and $6.00 for each subsequent record, they will send you as much marital information you want.
