Case Search Information (Background Searches)

Please see RECORDS REQUEST INFORMATION if you already know the case number and are requesting specific pleadings.

A records search/background check is to determine whether or not a case exists in our public District Court records. 

District Court records include Civil (including disputes over $50,000), Probate, Felony Criminal (already bound over from Circuit Court) and always confidential Juvenile and Adoption cases. 

There is no charge for the public to visit our office and search our public records.

Fees: 

  • Each name or version of name that you request our office to report on incurs a $10.00 search fee.

Processing time: 

  • Requests are completed upon receipt of payment and usually are completed within the following 1 - 2 business days.

Search Requests should include:

  • Name(s) to be searched.
  • Case type(s) (criminal and/or civil and/or probate).
  • Applicable "look back" period, if any (for example: 10 years).
  • Contact information for the requesting party in the event that we have questions.
