Jefferson County, Alabama – Marriage and Divorce Records

Do you have a good reason to need to know if someone is married, or if they have been divorced? Are you able to prove that you’re related to the persons named on the certificates?
Well, the good news is that it doesn’t matter: in Alabama, all Vital Records that concern the marital status of persons within Alabama are considered to be public knowledge. This means that you can request and receive any of these records for any reason – and at any time. All that you need to do is pay the Alabama Department of Public Health 15$ for the first copy, and $6 for every copy after that, and you can see all of the records that you want.
