Alberta Divorce Records When searching for divorce records in Alberta contact the Alberta Archives first. Be sure to provide them with the name of the parties, place of the divorce (as close as possible) and the approximate year. Be sure your letter/e-mail is clear and concise and state the specific record you need, i.e. Divorce Order/Records. The Provincial Archives have a Nominal Index that was created by the Court house and this will provide a Docket/File number. The Archivist can then retrieve the appropriate file and forward the information to you.

Provincial Archives of Alberta 8555 Roper Road Edmonton, Alberta T6E 5W1 Telephone: 780-427-1750 Website:

If the divorce took place less than 30 years ago you should contact the Court House directly for the information.
