The reason why divorce records like Divorce Records Volusia County are some of the most requested for records from the government would be because of the fact that these records are the official records of the government in regards to the fact of the divorce of the couple named in the record. This means that these are the best evidences that one could present in order to prove the fact of the divorce, something that is important given that divorce is something that would have effects that would be binding upon the whole world as it is something that would alter the status of the couple who had gotten the divorce.

Strictly speaking, divorce does not actually alter the status of the person who had gotten the divorce, it merely restores their status to what it was prior to the fact of the marriage, but since this change of status carries with it some changes that would be binding upon the world, there is still the need to prove the fact of the divorce, and these records are the best pieces of evidence that could be presented to prove that fact. When the divorce is granted, some of the rights and privileges that were given to the person by reason of the fact of the marriage would be taken away from him, just as some of the rights and privileges that were taken from the person by reason of the fact of the marriage would be restored to the person.

There is no obligation on the part of the party presenting the records from having to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate, but it must be noted that the presumption is not absolute and may be overturned through the use of competent evidence that would be presented by the party who would claim that the records are false.

As for the method of making the request, that would depend on the office where the request would be made, though it would usually be either through the mail or in person, with both methods having their own associated set of advantages and disadvantages.
