How to Search Court Records

Court Records in Monroe County, Iowa are available for public access. You can get birth, death, marriage and divorce records as well as criminal convictions, inmate information, jail time, bankruptcy information, parole records and many more. The vital records office maintains a national repository of this information. The repository was created by the Iowa State Supreme Court in order to help people find the right documents they need.

If you are looking for access to the Public Record Database of the Court of Appeals of Iowa, located in Des Moines, you will need to contact the Office of Vital Records and submit an application. You can expect to be waiting up to three weeks to receive your request. Once you have been approved, you will be sent a copy of the completed application in the mail. You may also be able to apply online through the site or by phone. You will still receive a copy of your completed form via regular mail.

To locate court records of other counties in the state, you can contact the county clerk offices directly. They maintain all public court documents for all of the counties in the state. However, the documents are often not updated or up to date, so you may have to obtain them from the Office of Vital Records and request the information you need.

Individuals applying for court records can use a standard address for filing applications, however, there are instances where a post office box or private address is more convenient. Applications can be made by fax or email. If you are using an email, make sure that it is from you and not an anonymous service.

In addition to applications, there are a few stipulations you must meet before access to the documents is granted. Individuals must be at least 18 years old. They must be a citizen of the United States and a resident of the state. You must also provide proof of your identity through some sort of government issued document such as a driver’s license or social security card.

Court documents are only available to the public if they are open to the public. This includes faxed copies. In addition, you may not use someone else’s information to search for public court records without their permission. If you are going to perform a record search, you must get permission from the person in question before doing so. There are many online services available to individuals who are interested in doing public record searches on someone else.
