Marriage & Divorce Records

Divorce Files

Divorce files are sealed documents and are only available to the plaintiff, defendant or attorneys of record. Identification is required to view a divorce file. You may review a divorce file that you are not a party to by obtaining a notarized statement from one of the litigants or with a court order. To obtain a copy of your divorce decree, you should contact Customer Service either in person or via a notarized statement. The County Clerk's Customer Service Department can be reached at 585-753-1600 or at 39 West Main Street, Room 105, Rochester, NY 14614. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Customer Service will need your name, date of divorce or approximate date and your contact information, if you are sending a notarized request. Once the records are located, they will contact you with the fee for the search and the copies. Should you have any further questions, please contact them at the number above.

For family court judgments, consult with that court for relevant information. Family Court can be reached at 585-371-3544.

Marriage Licenses

The Monroe County Clerk’s Office does not issue marriage licenses and does not keep copies of marriage licenses.

Marriage licenses are issued by city and town clerks. Copies of marriage licenses may be obtained from the office of the clerk who originally issued the marriage license.
