If you want to access divorce records in Colorado, you can contact the Colorado State Archives. The Archives hold two separate types of divorce documents. These include the Divorce Case Files and the Divorce Records.
The Divorce Case Files will include the Decree of Dissolution, Child Support Order, Separation Agreement and Parenting Plan and other documents. The Divorce Records or Register is a listing of divorces, and will provide information about divorces, including the divorce decree. The Divorce Record does not provide actual documents of divorce cases.
How to find information about a particular divorce
If you are looking for information about a particular divorce in the state of Colorado, you can log in to the Colorado.gov website, and go to the Divorce Records Section. The archives provide records for many of Colorado counties, but not all of them. For example, the Boulder County record listing will provide divorce records from between 1964 and 1995 only. The Archive Search database helps locate divorces from Adams, Bent, Boulder County, Conejos County, El Paso, Garfield, Park and Pitkin Counties.
You will need to provide a case number in order to locate a divorce that occurred in a particular county, and during the time period detailed on the website. However, if you do not have a case number, use the Archive Search feature. If that doesn’t work either, you have no other option but to contact the district court, where the divorce filing was made.
However, if you are looking for a divorce that is not on the list mentioned on the website, then you will probably find the record in the district court where the divorce was finalized.
