Indiana State Records shortens the process of looking for various court records, such as civil court conclusions, criminal court sentences, legal decisions, and other public records.
The Freedom of Information act, in addition to their stateside equivalents, maintain that court records are open and available to the public, meaning any American resident can get information about the functions and trials that happen at any court in the United States. These events include court records, lien judgements, criminal trials, civil trials, bankruptcy findings, and lawsuit details. The only exception is when an archive is legally deemed redacted, sealed, or nullified. This can be the situation with juvenile criminal court records, divorce records (which are often only accessible to the people getting divorced and their legal advisors), sealed birth records (for closed adoptions), or in cases of victim anonymity. Apart from these fairly unusual cases, criminal court records, trial court records, civil court records, and more are all accessible by law.
Using only a name, an address, or a combination of both, Indiana State Records shortens the procedure of finding your record. Simply enter in the name you want to investigate, and State Records will comb through every available online court record searching for a name match in an location you specify. This includes both digital and digitized records, meaning your search may even yield results from the early twentieth century.
