Divorce Records

If you need to obtain official records for your divorce, such as deeds and marriage records, they can be requested from the Clerk & Comptroller's Office of Palm Beach County. In addition to obtaining information on marital property, which may be subject to equitable distribution by the court, the Unified Family Court reviews, processes, and calendars all pertinent legal documents related to divorce and child custody issues.

Child Custody

If the father's legal parentage has not been formally established, a paternity proceeding may be necessary to establish child support or obtain custody and visitation rights. Paternity issues can be dealt with in the divorce process or established through a separate proceeding.

Child Support

Once the divorce is finalized, child support payments that are processed through the Florida State Disbursement Unit can be set up online through, which makes the process more convenient for both parties. If payment of child support becomes a problem, the Florida Department of Revenue is responsible for child support enforcement. The Clerk & Comptroller's Office also maintains records regarding child support and alimony payments.
