Generally and in most of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, the Court’s records of divorces are public and a private citizen may go into a court and be permitted to see the paperwork and other details of any divorce. Contrary to that, any county may choose to not permit the viewing of a divorce record. This may be contrary to law, but to require the county to make the record unavailable may require expensive Court action, possibly in the Pennsylvania Superior or Supreme Court. 

Also, in certain circumstances, parties may request that their particular divorce record be sealed and never available to the public. This often happens in the case of celebrity divorces or those of public officials.
