The earliest divorce records in Missouri were granted by the state. Hence, early St. Louis divorce records may be found in records of the Missouri Supreme Court and the Separation of Property agreements, which was close to a divorce record.

Today, divorce records from the City of St. Louis are available through:

City Circuit Court Clerk
Kevin Cahill, Historian
10 North Tucker
St. Louis, Missouri 63101

St. Louis County divorces (after 1876) are at:

St. Louis County Circuit Court
St. Louis County Government Center
7900 Carondelet
St. Louis, Missouri 63105

The Bureau of Vital Statistics, Jefferson City, Missouri, has maintained an index to marriage and divorce records in Missouri since July 1948. However, they have no actual record.
