Judicial Records & Court Documents & Public information
The judicial system is the system of courts
which interprets and applies the law in the name of the state. The
judicial system also provides a mechanism for the resolution of
disputes between parties. Under the doctrine of separation of
powers, the judicial system does not make the law or enforce the
law; rather it interprets the law and applies it to the facts of
Courts operate under county, state, and federal jurisdictions. A county
seat is a term for an administrative center for a county or civil
parish, primarily in the US. County courts function as
administrative subdivisions of a state and have no sovereign
jurisdiction of their own. In the US, a state court has
jurisdiction over disputes with some connection to a US state.
Cases are heard and evidence is presented in a trial court, which
is usually located in a county courthouse. If one of the litigants
of a court case is unsatisfied with the decision of the lower
courts, the matter can be taken up on appeal to a higher court
such as a state court of appeals, which will then review the
decision of the trial court. If still unsatisfied, the litigant
can appeal to the state supreme court, and possibly all the way to
the United States Supreme Court.
Due to the nature of the court system, obtaining court records can
be a difficult process. Aside from county, state, and federal
courts, there are also city courts which will often handle issues
such as traffic offenses, and violations of city ordinances. Other
examples of courts include but are not limited to police court,
probate court, municipal court, court of claims, family court,
small claims court, tax court, and workers compensation court.
Many of these types of courts are considered courts of limited
jurisdiction. More serious crimes are dealt with by courts of
general jurisdiction. Courts of general jurisdiction take
precedence over courts of limited jurisdiction. These divisions in
the court systems are necessary to make the court system more
efficient. However, they also make it very tough to find court
records. Using a professional service to locate court records can
save a lot of time and headache.
