How to Get Divorce Records From Conroe Texas Online
By Lisa S. Kramer
The city of Conroe, Texas is located in Montgomery County. There are two types of divorce records for divorce proceedings that occur in Montgomery County: a divorce decree and a divorce certificate. A divorce decree is a legal instrument prepared by the Montgomery County District Court which finalizes and sets forth the terms and conditions of the divorce, including division of marital property, child custody, child support and alimony. A Montgomery County divorce decree cannot be obtained online. A divorce certificate, also called a divorce verification letter, is a document issued by the Texas State Department of Health which states whether or not a divorce has been recorded with the State of Texas since 1968 and if so, provides the names of the husband and wife, date and place the divorce was finalized. A Montgomery County divorce certificate can be obtained online.
