About Court Records Search

What Are Court Records?

Court Records are documents, files, and transcripts associated with court cases and court dockets. Courts maintain records on everything that occurs during the legal process for future reference, including appeals. Court Records are typically maintained by the courts that produce the records. These courts may exist at the federal, state, county, or local level.

There are many types of Court Records, including summonses, warrants, writs, subpoenas, indictments, injunctions, foreclosures, and jury lists. Trial records and transcripts detail cases heard by the court, including witnesses, testimony, rulings, and sentencing.

Court Records contain information on many types of court cases, including criminal convictions, monetary damages, eviction actions, traffic court violations, and other legal violations. They also provide information on defendants and plaintiffs, lawyers, and judges. These records often include arrest records, warrant search orders, judgments, appeals, and sentences.

Multiple courts maintain Court Records. Criminal courts have records for criminal misdemeanors and felonies, including murder, assault, sex crimes, and property crimes. Civil courts maintain records on contract violations, negligent acts, and violations of constitutional rights. Other courts may keep records on probate cases, estate disputes, divorce decrees, bankruptcies, and adoptions. These courts operate at the federal, state, or local level.

Searching Court Records is typically part of a background check. Many companies and individuals use background checks to screen for someone's criminal history, and Court Records are a valuable resource for learning about an individual's charges, convictions, and sentences. Employers, landlords, and law enforcement officers all use Court Records to learn about an individual's legal history.

Court Records may also contain information about legal actions involving corporations, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and schools. Lawsuits, violations, and settlement information may be included in Court Records.
