About UK Divorce Files, Continued

While it is likely that the majority of case files do not contain the less formal documents, some files are “full files,” or files that do contain these documents. If you are looking for divorce records in the UK, it is important that you understand that few files survived after 1937.

Currently in the UK, divorce case files are destroyed 20 years after a divorce. You can apply to the relevant court to gain permission to view the UK divorce case file within this 20 year time limit.
