Arizona Public Records
Court records (including marriage and divorce records) and vital records are considered Arizona public records. The Arizona Office of Vital Records began recording births and deaths in July 1909. Arizona is a "closed record" state; vital records are not public and are permanently restricted. Birth and death certificate copies must be requested by mail, with appropriate proof of relationship. Marriage and divorce records are maintained by the Clerk of the Superior Court in the appropriate county. Arizona public court records are available through the Arizona Administrative Office of Courts. A free online index is available for most court records.
