Finding a boyfriend’s divorce decree records could be the fastest way to find out if your boyfriend is lying about previous marriages and relationships. Sometimes, in your gut, you know someone is hiding something from you.
All it takes is a little detective work, and you can find out what you need to know. It could be the best way to protect yourself from potential predators.
Is He Who He Says He Is?
Divorce decrees contain information like names, addresses, finances, properties, children, stocks, affairs, and other vital things about a person’s past.
If you want to really know about his past, how he deals with a crisis, who he’s been involved with, you’ll want to look at this information and decide if he’s who he says he is.
So many people lie about their past relationships that you might not trust their story. Their opinions are likely biased or warped to favor themselves. Nothing is more objective than a legal record of their behavior.
How Many Times Has He Been Married?
Statistically, the more times a person has been married, then the more likely their next marriage will fail.
Is he damaged goods? If he has already been married several times, then there is probably something wrong with the relationships he chooses to be in or the way he behaves in those relationships (or both!).
This is something you’ll need to know before you decide to pursue a long term relationship with him. If a person changes or even becomes dangerous in a marriage, then it is likely to be recorded in their divorce documents.
Public Records are Legal to Access
It is completely and 100% legal to access a person’s divorce files. They are a public record covered and protected under the Freedom of Information Act.
This is information you should know about a person! If they are hiding it from you, then something must have gone wrong. Perhaps they were adulterous, held in contempt of court, didn’t want to pursue custody of their child, or even had a restraining order on them.
Relationships can be difficult at times, so you need to know how your partner is going to behave under the pressure and potential crises that may happen.
If he is the type to completely crumble, or behave dangerously, during a divorce, then it might just give you second thoughts about being in a serious relationship with them.
Find out more about your partner’s previous marriages and divorce decree records and see if his story holds up, or if he’s hiding a dark secret from the past.
