How to Get Copies of a Divorce Decree in Texas

by Stacey Price

An Agreed Decree of Divorce contains all of the court rulings regarding the settlement in a divorce hearing. It outlines the terms and agreements in the divorce, such as how assets will be split between both parties, and if there is spousal support to be paid and for how long. Request Divorce Decree requests in Texas from the District Clerk's Office in which the divorced occurred by simply filling out a form and submitting it to the office.

Locate the District Clerk's Office in the county where the divorce occurred (see References ). Log in to its website and download the necessary form to request the divorce decree. Those without Internet access can obtain the form in person from the District Clerk's Office.

Complete the form entirely. Mail it to the address indicated on the form.

Send in the payment for the requested documents. Once the department has performed the search, it will send you an invoice for the cost of the documents. Return the invoice promptly with a check or money order. Once processed, your documents will be mailed to you.
