Anyone may request court documents. The procedure and fees will vary depending on the person or business asking for the records.
We have three main types of records requests:
- Commercial requesters are those who may be expected to use the court document(s) for the purpose of sale or resale, or for any purpose in which the purchaser can reasonably anticipate the receipt of monetary gain.
- Non-commercial requesters include those who are a party to the case, the general public, government agencies, non-profit agencies, the media, etc.
- Bulk records requests for use in credit reporting, background checks, etc.
Please visit our Records Requests page for detailed information about fees and rules on court records.
