County Court Records - Is There an Easy Way to Search County Court Cases Online?


Visitors: 281

There are times when you need to research court records.   Speaking of county court records:  is there an easy way to search country court cases online?  Yes, in most cases, you can access county court cases online right at the website of the county involved.   Not all counties are set up with internet websites, but most are up to date and electronically savvy.

The government websites are free, but usually you will have to pay a fee for copies of records, and may be required to submit some proof of why you are qualified to obtain such records.   On some websites, they will want you to register online, but your information is confidential and that should not be a problem.   Doing it yourself is cheapest.

There are other commercial internet websites that provide searching county court records for a fee.   This may be worthwhile if you do not have the time or resources to do your own research and don't mind paying for information.   There are probably some unscrupulous websites who take in a fee and then either provide only free from the government types of information, or no information that is useful or information that is outdated.   So, you need to look around before buying, buyer beware, just like any other product or service.

The place to start would be with the county office where the record is located.   Types of records you may be able to access include:  tax and deed records, campaign finance records, property searches, title searches, state laws, resolutions, DBA and co-partnership records, birth, death and marriage records, restaurant inspections, and ordinances.   You can also access various forms online, such as DBA forms, dog license forms, birth and death certificate request forms, passport application forms, and more.

If the county does not have a website, you can try the state website and work from there.   Other places to try would include hiring a private investigator, newspaper archives, and some government agencies like the Social Security Administration,   National Archives, and local cemetery records.   Some of the initial contact can be done online, for other things you may have to just go in person to an office.   Churches maintain records of members, and there may be some school records that can be accessed.   By far the easy way to search county court cases online or county court records is to start with the free county clerk's website.
