About Public Records

Yes, in most cases Public Records are available to the public.

In certain states, there is a waiting period to obtain Public Records that reveal private information.

Which government agencies provide Public Records?

A number of government agencies maintain Public Records and make them available to the public. At the local level, many Public Records are held by County Clerk's Offices or Vital Records Offices. State Departments of Revenue or Departments of Health keep Public Records. At the federal level, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is one agency that has Public Records.

What is the difference between a certified and uncertified Public Record?

A certified copy of a vital record, such as birth or death certificates, is considered legal proof of the event. A certified record typically has an embossed seal and must be requested through the appropriate government agency. Other forms of Public Records, including souvenir, decorative, or uncertified copies, may not be valid for certain legal purposes.
