The more information you provide, the fewer name matches you will receive from the system. For example, it will be easier for you to determine which "John Smith" is the one you are seeking if you include the date of the filing, the case number, or the type of case you are seeking. Please note that your search criteria must be an exact match to our database in order to receive the desired results.

By Case Number: Search for cases by CASE NUMBER by entering as much of the case number as you know. A search using the numbers "123" will return a list of cases that contain 123 in the case number, (i.e. SC123456A).

By Case Name: Search for cases by CASE NAME by entering the person's first and last name only. If your initial search does not yield results, please try to search again by transposing the first and last name or entering only the person's last name. Search for businesses in the index by typing a full or partial name.

By Case Type: Search for cases by CASE TYPE by entering only the associated prefix for the type of case(s) that you are looking for according to the following:

Civil Case Types:
CIV (Civil), FL (Family Law), PRO (Probate), SMC (Small Claims)

Criminal Case Types:
SC or SX (Felony), CR or CO (Misdemeanor)
