The only way to get certified copies of divorce records is to apply to the Superior Court of California, County of Butte. The problem is this: There is no information on their website for ordering divorce certificate copies, and their phone line automated menu gives no relevant options, and no way to speak with an operator. 

We've found that the best way to apply for your divorce certificate copies is to take the following steps. But remember, it’s a huge hassle and DoNotPay has a better way.

  1. Mail a letter to the main Butte County Courthouse in Oroville Court requesting the following:

  • An application for the certificate copies
  • The fees required for first and subsequent copies (which may change periodically)
  • Currently acceptable payment methods

Be sure to include a self-addressed stamped envelope.

  1. Go to the Clerk of the Court's office in person

This might be the best option (other than the DoNotPay shortcut below) to get copies of your divorce certificate without waiting for mail correspondence—which could take weeks: Gather proper ID information that proves you are either:

  • One of the persons on the certificate
  • An immediate family member
  • A legal representative

You'll also want the following information on hand:

  • The date the divorce was finalized
  • The presiding judge
  • The case number

Go to one of the two locations in the table above during business hours, and request assistance with ordering divorce certificates from the attendant.
