Many divorces are not contested, so there are unlikely to be any additional legal documents to those you find at the Ouachita Parish County Clerk or Registrar Recorder's office, but if there was any disagreement between the two parties - about the circumstances regarding the separation, the custody of any children or even financial disputes - then there will also be papers and records relating to the court hearing for you to search through. Divorce records are not an ideal way to search for details of your family history, as these documents were often only comprehensively kept from the early twentieth century.
Before that time, individual counties either did not allow divorce or did not keep strict records of which marriages had been legally ended. If you are looking for more recent information on someone who may have lived in Ouachita Parish County in the state of Louisiana, especially in relation to their marital status or relationship history, then a search of local divorce records could prove very useful. Perhaps you suspect that your new partner has not been entirely truthful about how many times they have been married, or even if their last relationship is legally over; you can always search their name and details in the divorce records maintained by the County Clerk or Registrar Recorder in Ouachita Parish County.
There are sometimes restrictions on who can see these documents in their entirety, according to the finer details of the divorce and how long ago it was, but by looking through the archives maintained by the County Clerk or even the county courthouse in Ouachita Parish County, you should be able to find enough information to put your mind at rest. If you are looking at older records for research purposes, you will probably find there are fewer restrictions on the information you can see in these documents. Sometimes court records concerning divorce hearings will contain information relating to the financial settlements.
This can be useful if you are concerned that your new partner is only interested in marrying people for their money! Although the Ouachita Parish County Clerk and Registrar Recorder have their own archives with many of the documents transferred to computer systems to make searching easier, if you live far from the state of Louisiana but are interested in searching divorce records in the region, it might be a better idea to use one of the commercial sites that compile data on this kind of personal information from various sources across the country.
