There is no way to track the divorce online, you can find a copy by contacting the county where you believe the divorce was issues. Generally if you go to the office of the clerk of court, you can search for your file, if a divorce was granted, they will have a copy of it.

7 years ago my ex-husband left me and my children and moved to another state. I contacted a do it yourself divorce service and paid $249 to obtain a simple divorce. I had already filed for child support and received an order that I think includes custody. He rarely paid child support and then was arrested recently. He asked for a copy of the divorce paper. I was unable to find it and can’t find the listing for the agency in the county that did it for me. I can’t seem to locate a record of my divorce. I have since remarried. I am not sure that they actually did grant me a divorce. I took the paper with me when I remarried and they must have thought it is official. My question is, If I can’t find proof or my divorce, am I legally still married to him and if so is my current marriage invalid? How do I remedy this situation so I am not guilty of a legal offense. Is there an online way to track a divorce in North Carolina?
