Obtaining a copy of a court document is a two-step process.
The initial step is to make the request in writing using the Copy Request Form. If you do not know the case/cause number, include a $5.00 search fee per name (money order or cashier’s check). You must provide sufficient detail for the clerks to perform a search for the file and document your are requesting.
If the document is discovered, the clerk will contact the requestor and inform them of the purchase amount for the copies. Once the payment is received by the District Clerk's Office, the copies will be mailed to the requestor. Prices are determined by the number of pages within a given document. Regular copies are $.50 per page and certified copies are $1.00 per page.
Before the copies can be mailed, the requestor must forward payment in the form of a cashier's check, money order and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. If requesting copies in person, the District Clerk's Office will accept payments by cash or credit cards (no personal checks).
