Court Records Requests
Court records that are not confidential or sealed are available to the public. Court staff is responsible for maintaining all documents in the local court files and assists the public with requests for copies of court documents. Record requests are handled on a first come, first serve basis.
Documents in newer court cases can be reviewed using the kiosk computers in the court house lobby. Older case files that have not been digitized can be reviewed by requesting the file be retrieved.
Adoption and Juvenile cases are confidential. Access to these cases is limited. For information about requesting copies from an Adoption case, go to our Adoption information page.
To request copies from a Juvenile case please contact the court.
To obtain access to a court file, request copies from a court file or request audio copies of proceedings, complete and submit the court file or Jefferson Copy Request Form. The copy request can be submitted by email, US mail, fax, phone, or through the customer service window at the court house.
Court staff will calculate the total cost after the request is made. If copies are being mailed, postage costs will be added. All fees must be paid in full before any copies will be made.
