Divorce Records Information
Where Divorce Records Are Available
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk does NOT record or house divorce records or information.
Record information for divorce filings is available at the Los Angeles Superior Court where the divorce was filed. If the Superior Court location is not known, information can be obtained at the County Courthouse by calling at (213) 830-0803 or going to 111 North Hill St., Los Angeles, CA, 90012.
Divorce filings that took place within the Central Los Angeles area are transferred to the County Record Center (Archives) normally within two to three years of the filing.
Divorce Records Outside of Central Los Angeles
Divorce filings outside of the Central Los Angeles area can take five or more years for transfer to the Archives. Records are transferred to the Archives when storage space at the courthouses becomes limited. The Archives can be contacted by phone at (213) 974-1378 or in-person at 222 North Hill St., Los Angeles, CA 90012. Some divorce records are available online.
