By state law, you must supply your relationship to the parties on the dissolution of marriage documents as well as your reason for requesting Maine divorce records. If the records are from your own divorce, you may need to provide a legible copy of your valid photo ID.
If you are requesting a certified copy of a Maine divorce record that is not your own, you may need a signed permission form of at least one of the individuals named on the document. In many cases though, if your relationship and reason make sense such as for family history research or legal purposes, you will be granted quick access to the copy of the Maine divorce record you need.
Remember that according to Maine law, a small fee must be paid before the search for the record can be performed. Maine law also states that if the record is not found, the fee is non-refundable as it applies to the search itself. With the present fee at $15 for a certified copy and $10 for an non-certified copy, this is reasonable and the costs will always be kept small for legal reasons.
