How to order a Florida Dissolution of Marriage Certificate (Divorce or Annulment) 

Florida dissolution of marriage certificates from June 6, 1927 to present that have been recorded by the Clerk of Circuit Court are available through the Bureau of Vital Statistics. The certificate is issued as an abstract of the information taken from the judgment and is acceptable as evidence that a dissolution was finalized and granted. The actual judgement may be obtained from the Clerk of Circuit Court in the county where the dissolution was granted.

乐动体育登录After a dissolution of marriage (divorce or annulment) has been recorded with the Clerk of Circuit Court, the Clerk forwards a report to the Bureau of Vital Statistics for permanent filing. This process takes approximately 60 days. If the current dissolution of marriage is less than 60 days from the date of application and immediate evidence is required, you may contact the county Clerk of Circuit Court where the dissolution was granted. Any dissolutions prior to June 6, 1927 are obtainable from the Clerk of Circuit Court in the county where the dissolution was granted.
