  • What court records can I search?
    You can search both open and closed cases. In the district courts, cases included in the database include domestic relations, civil, and criminal. In the county courts, the cases in the database include traffic, traffic infraction, civil (to $10,000), small claims, and misdemeanors. Sealed cases are not available on the site. Also not included are juvenile and probate case types. Additionally, certain information within each case is non-public. Social security numbers are omitted, as are street addresses. All parties to a case except the plaintiff and defendant (and in domestic relations cases, the petitioner and the respondent) are considered non-public. This includes victims, police officers and jurors. Attorney names, however, are public. Long narratives are excluded from the database, as are suppressed, sealed, or confidential filing. Financial information - such as fines - is summarized, not detailed.

  • What does it mean when I get an internal error?
    Internal errors on a CoCourts search can happen for a number of reasons. An internal error is typically an isolated problem with a particular search, sometimes a result of user input error, but most often due to an internet/server glitch.

    If you receive an "internal error" or "timing out error" message on a search, please check your SEARCH HISTORY first located under My Profile. If the search does not appear in your SEARCH HISTORY, you were not charged for the search. Try to conduct the search again after waiting a minute or two. If you do receive consistent Internal Errors within a period of time, this may indicate a more consistent issue and we encourage you to contact the client relations department at (866) 277-7006 or

  • How much does it cost?
    The one-time cost per search is only up to $7.00 or less based on volume (see below). In many cases, your search will return more than one result. You do have up to 24 hours after the initial search to review any or all of the results by going through the Search History tab located under My Profile without being charged again. Once the 24 hour window has passed the search will need to be submitted and paid for again. And keep in mind that your search parameters may yield NO RESULTS - searches with no results DO also incur the regular search fee.
    When conducting a name search, you may search up to FOUR (4) First Names using the Same Last Name. All First Names MUST be submitted in the initial search by typing the first names into First Name space, separated by commas. The Last Name will remain the same for the search.

    *IMPORTANT: If you simply resubmit the search again rather than entering the various First Names at one time, you will be billed separately for each name searched.
    Example: Your target has the name of John Smith. But you are not certain of his exact first name spelling. You may search John, Jon, Jonathon, Jonathan – SMITH, all for the price of one search, provided you submitted all those names within one search.

    *IMPORTANT: If you hit the back button and then hit ENTER or SEARCH again after performing a search (whether changing your original search criteria or keeping them the same), you are generating a NEW search and you will be billed for that search.

    Check out the PRICING tab for more information.

  • How do I pay?
    You can pay each time you search, or you can buy search credits in advance and draw them down. If you purchase search credits, the amount of search credits you have will be displayed on the search screen and adjusted as you perform additional searches.

  • What forms of payment do you accept?

  • Can I prepay?
