The documents were signed at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse in Santa Monica, California to end the Presley's six year marriage. Superior Judge Laurence J. Rittenbrand granted the divorce.
The Times Newspaper reported the next day, "Elvis and Priscilla emerged from the courthouse arm in arm, and Presley gave his ex-wife a friendly kiss before driving off." Former Los Angeles Times photographer George Fry captured exclusive images of Elvis and Priscilla leaving arm in arm out of the courthouse.
Elvis and Priscilla met in Germany on September 13, 1959. They married May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas, and their Daughter Lisa Marie Presley was born February 1, 1968.
"When we were together, you never knew we were divorced. We had a lot of affinity for each other. We had a closer bond, probably because the effort was off and there was just a purity. And we were very good friends."
"Even though they were divorce, they were like two high school kids, they still called each other. They remained very good friends."
