Q:

How can I find out if I am still legally married?

A:

Individuals can confirm marital status or whether a divorce decree was granted by contacting the county clerk's records office within the county where the divorce was filed. People can also request marriage and divorce records from the state's vital records office, according to the California Department of Public Health.

The vital records office within each state maintains records of birth, marriage, death, civil unions, domestic partnerships and adoptions, according to the State of New Jersey Department of Health. People can request certified copies of marriage or divorce records by completing an application, providing proof of identity and relationship to the person listed on the vital record, and paying a fee for processing. Fees vary from state to state.

If divorce papers were filed and the individuals involved were not notified of a court date, hearing or judgment of dissolution of the marriage, couples can contact the county courthouse where the papers were filed to inquire about the status of the divorce or an anticipated court date, according to the California Department of Public Health. If a notice of entry of judgment or final judgment has not been signed by a judge, the marriage has likely not ended in divorce yet.
