Written Transcripts

Transcript Information
The Court does not prepare on-site transcripts.
If you are not filing an appeal of your case, you may only need an audio copy of the hearing or trial and not a transcript.  An audio copy is a sound recording that you listen to.  A transcript is a written record of the hearing that you read.  Written transcripts are not normally part of Circuit Court case files.  Transcripts are made by a professional transcriber who listens to the audio (sound) recording and types the spoken words into a written document.  Transcripts are much more expensive than audio copies.  If you would like a written transcript, you may obtain an audio recording of the proceeding from the court, and then have it transcribed at your own expense. (see Court Records - Audio Copies)
Please note:  State law restricts who may receive audio copies of hearings and trials for some case types such as adoptions and juvenile cases.  If you are requesting an audio copy from a restricted (confidential) case type, your request may be denied or you may be required to complete additional paperwork, show identification, and pick up the copies in person.
