What is a Divorce?
A divorce is officially defined as the dissolution of a marriage contracted between a man and a woman, by the judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, or by an act of the legislature. Any of the partners of a marriage can call for divorce but both parties must agree to completely nullify a marriage. Divorce records are available as a part of the vital records information of each state.
Before beginning your divorce investigation, please note that divorce law is different in each state. In addition to conducting investigations related to the dissolution of marriage or searching for divorce records, private investigators may engage in financial investigations to determine the assets owned by either spouse.
