Lawrence County, Alabama – Marriage and Divorce Records

Have you ever attempted to access an official record of someone other than yourself? If you have, then you are probably aware that it can be very challenging – courts often demand detailed reasons why you need this record, the police will wonder why you need to have access to a prisoner’s crime list, and even a birth record requires you to be related to the person named on the certificate to even look at it.

But this is not the case with marriage certificates or divorce records.

This is because in Alabama, all certificates or marriage or divorce, whether for Lawrence County or any other county, are considered to be public knowledge. This means that you can find out whom is married to who, when they got married – or even when they got divorced – at any time and for any reason.

However, this database is not online, and you must go through the Alabama Department of Public Health to access any such marriage or divorce records for Lawrence County. Their main webpage is

The first copy of any Vital Record, which also includes birth and death records, will cost you a $15.00 fee, and each record after that will incur a fee of $6.00.
