Additional Information About Court Records

Article from PInow.com | by Kimberly Faber

Court records are quite often the best source of factual-based information in an investigation. However, this resource is often underutilized, due to the vast amount of courts, geographical limitations, and the time and manpower it takes to track down the records you are looking for. Databases offer great information on whether a court case exists, but to pull the actual court filings you have to go directly to the court.

Court records can be a treasure trove of information. They do not require any special permission for access and available to anybody – you just have to know how to get them.

There are basically two separate classifications of courts: Federal Courts and State Courts.

Geographical Boundaries

Federal Courts handle cases like immigration law, bankruptcy law, social security law, patent law, and other federal laws that are being broken. There are 94 district courts in the United States. Federal courts include the courts below, listed in order of superiority.

  • U.S. Supreme Court
  • U.S. Court of Appeals
  • Special Courts
  • U.S. District Court

State Courts handle civil matters like contract disputes, family matters, divorces, and other state-level matters. There are over 3,000 county or county-equivalent state courts in the United States. In order of superiority, state courts include:

  • State Supreme Court
  • Superior Court
  • Special Courts
  • Local Courts

Special Courts would include tax courts, bankruptcy courts, social security courts, etc.

  • Court and Administrative Filings: bankruptcy filings, judgments, liens, felonies, misdemeanors, litigation and UCCs
  • Business Records: articles of incorporation, corporate records and comprehensive reports from commercial bureaus
