Search the Saint Joseph County, Indiana 1832 - December 31, 1997 and 1980 - 1987 (Mishawaka) Divorce Records Index

There are 104,215 index records in this database. This database is intended for genealogical research purposes only. The dates may represent a petition, an appearance, dismissal, divorce, or a different order as deemed by the judge.

The missing information in columns is missing on the actual record. Dates prior to 1910 are obtained from other records than the actual docket book and the date is the petition of the record and not the actual order date. Further research will be needed to obtain the actual order date. Circuit Court Docket Book 1 starts in 1910 and it is this time frame when the final disposition of the case is noted on the docket and is noted on the spreadsheet.
