What Does a Court Records Report Include?

Types of Court Records

Criminal Records

  • Felonies - A felony is a serious crime that involves violence or the threat of violence. Some common felonies include assault, theft, murder, and drug sales. Felony crimes are usually punishable by incarceration and fines. However, certain felonies can also result in the loss of certain rights, such as the right to vote or own a firearm.
  • Misdemeanors - A misdemeanor is a lower-level crime than a felony, usually punishable by jail time or small fines, sometimes both. Misdemeanors are further divided into two categories: petty misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors. Petty misdemeanors are less severe crimes, such as disorderly conduct or violating an injunction. Gross misdemeanors are more severe crimes, such as assault or battery.
  • Convictions - A criminal conviction is a formal determination by a court of law that someone committed an act considered a crime. Anyone who commits a crime is subject to the possibility of being convicted of a crime, regardless of age or circumstances. A conviction will remain on your report indefinitely, whereas charges have the potential to be expunged or sealed.
  • Jail Records - A jail record is a document created by law enforcement agencies after an arrest. It serves as evidence of the arrest and can be used to show that one is currently in jail for a reason. A jail record can also be used to track when someone was released from jail. The information contained in a jail record may include arrest date, address, bail amount, if any, mugshots, and more!

Civil Cases

  • Bankruptcies - Bankruptcy is the process of legally ending your debts by court order. The most common types of bankruptcy filed include Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. It's often used when you can't make payments and don't have enough money to pay all your debts. When you file a bankruptcy case, you're asking the court to let you stop making payments on your debts. Bankruptcy automatically ends all collection actions (including wage garnishments) and lifts all liens against your property. Bankruptcy also protects you from repossession of your car or house.
  • Liens - A lien is interest-bearing security, like a mortgage or a tax lien, held by someone other than the owner of an asset. There are also mechanic’s liens put on a vehicle when the owner has not paid for repairs already performed on their vehicle. If you are not able to make your payments, the lender can take out a lien against your asset, such as your house, jewelry, boat, or car. They provide a legal way to collect debts from people who cannot afford to pay them back.
  • Judgments - A legal judgment is a final written order of the court that resolves a legal dispute. The judgment may be issued as a result of a trial, settlement, or default judgment. A judgment is not necessarily enforceable; it may be suspended or reversed on appeal. The judgment can usually include any monetary award or other relief awarded by the court and also any costs, including attorney fees.
  • Small Claims - Small claims are used to resolve disputes or lawsuits that do not exceed a certain amount of money. These types of disputes can include personal injury cases, landlord-tenant disputes, and contract disputes. These courts typically handle cases that cost $5,000 or less and typically do not require a lawyer.

Arrests & Warrants

  • Arrest Records - An arrest record is a document that contains information about someone who has been arrested by a law enforcement agency. An arrest record can be used as proof of criminal activity. Any document issued by a government agency, including court documents and police reports, can contain an arrest record. An arrest record does not necessarily mean that a person has been convicted of a crime. Arrest records are typically released directly from the agency that performed the arrest.
  • DUIs - DUI stands for "driving under the influence" and is used to describe a variety of criminal offenses that are connected to driving while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other substances, including medication, as well as reckless driving and speeding. In addition to criminal charges, a DUI can also lead to license suspension or revocation, and insurance increases.
  • DWIs - DWI stands for driving while intoxicated. It’s a blanket term used to describe a wide range of unlawful situations related to driving under the influence, including driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) above the state's legal limit, driving with an illicit substance in your system, or disobeying the implied consent law. While DWIs are typically associated with people who drank alcohol prior to getting behind the wheel, they can also occur when a driver takes prescription or over-the-counter drugs without consulting their doctor first.
  • Warrants - When a police department has probable cause to believe that someone committed a crime, they may issue a warrant for that person’s arrest. A warrant is an order from the court authorizing a law enforcement agency to do something, such as arrest the accused. Warrants are usually issued on request by law enforcement agents to enforce legal action such as search warrants, arrest warrants, and search and seizure warrants. Warrants are generally issued by a judge after being satisfied that there is probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed.

Traffic Violations

  • Speeding Tickets - Speeding tickets are issued to traffic violators who are driving too fast for the conditions. In addition to fines and insurance increases, speeding tickets can result in points on your driving record that may stay there for years. These points can affect your insurance rates, ability to get financing for a car loan or car insurance policy, and more. If you have multiple tickets and point accumulations, you may have difficulty getting into another car loan or car insurance policy.
  • Traffic Violations - Traffic violations are actions that violate traffic laws. They can range from not stopping at stop signs to driving too fast or recklessly. Traffic violations are a common cause of car accidents, and they can have serious consequences, including fines, jail time, and license suspension. In many cases, they are also considered moving violations, so they can lead to points on your driving record.
  • Reckless Driving - Reckless driving is driving in a way that puts you or others at risk. This can include speeding, running red lights, and racing the last few miles to your destination. It can also include driving with poor judgment and an unthinking, impulsive nature. Reckless driving is a violation of the law in all 50 states. It can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances of the offense and whether it results in injury or death.
  • Accidents - An auto accident is defined as an event that occurs when a vehicle is involved in a collision with another car, truck, or object. It can happen anywhere: on the road, at a construction site, in a parking lot, or while driving down the street. While every accident is different, common causes include distracted driving, not using seat belts properly, speeding, and driving too fast for the weather conditions.

Types of Courts

Federal Court

A federal court is a court of the United States that hears cases involving issues related to the Constitution or laws of the United States. Federal courts are divided into three types: the Supreme Court, which is the highest court in the land; appellate courts, which hear appeals from lower courts; and district courts, which are the trial courts for federal cases. The Constitution of the United States gives Congress the power to establish federal courts. Congress has exercised this power by creating various types of federal courts, each with its own jurisdiction and set of federal court records.

District Court

A district court is a court of the United States federal judiciary that handles both civil and criminal cases. The district courts are the trial courts of the federal judiciary. In the United States, there are 94 federal district courts, which are divided into 12 regional circuits with at least one district court in each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The district court is the trial court of the federal court system, and its docket is where most lawsuits begin and where most criminal prosecutions take place. District courts also hear appeals from decisions made by federal administrative agencies.

Superior Court

Superior courts in the United States are courts of general jurisdiction that handle a variety of civil and criminal cases. These courts are typically divided into trial courts and appellate courts. Trial courts hear cases and make decisions, while appellate courts review the decisions of trial courts. There are two types of superior courts in the United States: state superior courts and federal district courts. State superior courts are the highest state courts in each state. They have appeals from lower state courts, as well as some federal cases, on their dockets. Federal district Courts are the federal government's equivalent of state superior court. There is at least one federal district court in every state, and these courts have exclusive jurisdiction over certain types of cases, such as bankruptcy cases.

Family Court

A family court is a specialized court that deals with issues relating to families and children. Family courts are designed to provide a more child-centered and family-focused approach to resolving disputes than traditional court systems. Family courts typically have jurisdiction over matters such as divorce, child custody, and adoption. Some family courts also have jurisdiction over domestic violence cases, paternity actions, and other matters related to families and children. In many jurisdictions, family courts are part of a larger court system that includes criminal courts, civil courts, and probate courts. In some jurisdictions, family courts are separate from other court systems. Family courts typically employ a team of professionals such as judges, lawyers, social workers, and counselors to help resolve disputes. The focus of family court proceedings is on the best interests of the child rather than on determining who is right or wrong.

State Court

State courts are the judicial system of each state in the United States and handle cases that arise under state law. These courts typically have a hierarchical structure, with a trial court at the bottom, followed by an appellate court, and at least one supreme court at the top. The types of cases on the state courts’ docket include criminal cases, civil cases, traffic cases, probate cases, and family law cases. State courts also have the power to issue a writ, or orders from the court telling someone to do something or to stop doing something. They also have access to all types of private and public court records for the state.

Appellate Court

There are 13 United States Courts of Appeals, each covering a geographic region called a circuit. There is also a Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, which has national jurisdiction covering specific types of cases, like patent cases. Cases decided by a district court within that circuit may be appealed to the corresponding United States Court of Appeals. Appellate courts exist in some form in almost every legal system. In most jurisdictions, the court system is divided into at least three levels: the trial court, which hears fact-specific cases and makes initial decisions; the appellate court, which reviews the decisions of the trial court; and finally, the supreme court (or equivalent), which hears appeals from the appellate court.

Probate Court

A probate court is a court that supervises the estate of a deceased person and may also handle matters related to the guardianship of minors and incapacitated adults. Probate courts in the United States are administered by state governments, and each state has its own probate laws. In most states, the probate process begins with the filing of a petition with the probate court by the executor or administrator of the estate. The court will then issue an order appointing the executor or administrator and will also issue Letters of Testamentary or Letters of Administration, which give the executor or administrator the authority to act on behalf of the estate. The probate court will oversee the administration of the estate and will determine whether any claims against the estate are valid. The court will also distribute the assets of the estate according to the terms of the will, or if there is no will, according to state law, so there are public court records of the events once the official case is closed.

Municipal Court

Municipal courts are local courts that have minor offenses on their dockets. These include traffic violations, disorderly conduct, and other petty crimes. Most municipal courts are presided over by a judge, but some have a panel of judges. Cases tried in municipal court are usually less serious than those tried in state or federal court. Municipal courts typically have jurisdiction over cases that occur within the city limits. They also have the authority to hear certain types of cases that occur outside the city limits, as long as the defendant lives in the city or the offense took place within the city limits. In some instances, municipal courts may have concurrent jurisdiction with other courts, such as when a case involves both a traffic violation and a crime. Municipal court procedures vary from state to state but generally follow similar rules to those of state and federal courts. Most municipal courts require defendants to appear in person for their arraignment, at which time they are formally charged with an offense.

Juvenile Court

A juvenile court is a court of law that deals with the cases of minors who have been accused of committing a crime. In the United States, juvenile courts are separate from the adult criminal justice system. The main purpose of the juvenile justice system is to rehabilitate minors so that they can become productive members of society, plus track juvenile records. There are different types of juvenile courts in the United States. Some states have a separate juvenile court system, while other states have a combined court system that handles both adult and juvenile cases. The majority of states use a blended model, where there is a separate court system for juveniles, but certain serious offenses can be transferred to the adult criminal court system. If a minor is accused of committing a crime, they will go through the juvenile justice system. The first step is usually an arrest, followed by a detention hearing. If the juvenile is found to be delinquent, they will be placed in a rehabilitation program. The type of rehabilitation program will depend on the severity of the crime and the needs of the juvenile.

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest judicial body in the country and the head of the federal judiciary system. The court seats nine justices appointed by the president and then confirmed by the Senate. The justices serve for life or until they retire. The court hears cases that involve issues of national importance, such as civil rights, freedom of speech, and separation of powers. It also has original jurisdiction over cases involving federal officials and ambassadors. The court’s decisions are final and cannot be appealed. The court meets in Washington, D.C., in a building that is part of the U.S. Capitol complex. The Court can choose to hear a case either because it involves an issue of federal law, or because it is a conflict between two lower courts. After hearing oral arguments, the justices meet in conference to discuss the case and vote on a decision. Once the decision is made, it is written up in an opinion, which is released to the public. The Supreme Court has a great deal of power, as it is the final say on what federal law means. However, the Court’s power is not infinite. The Constitution limits the types of cases that the Court can hear, and Congress can pass laws that override Supreme Court decisions.

Regional Tribal Court

Regional tribal courts are established by federally recognized Native American tribes and are located on reservations. These courts have criminal and civil jurisdiction over cases involving tribe members, as well as over non-tribal members who are accused of crimes committed on reservation land. Tribal courts also have the power to issue subpoenas, administer oaths, and order the production of evidence. In addition, they can sentence offenders to prison time or impose other punishments, such as fines or community service. If you have been accused of a crime on reservation land, it is important to know that you will be subject to the jurisdiction of the tribal court system.

Bankruptcy Court

A bankruptcy court is part of the federal court system, and it hears cases involving bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is a legal process that helps people who can't pay their debts get a fresh start by discharging their debts and giving them a chance to rebuild their credit. If you file for bankruptcy, your case will be heard in bankruptcy court. Bankruptcy courts are presided over by bankruptcy judges, who are experts in bankruptcy law and have the power to make decisions about your case. If you have filed for bankruptcy, you will need to appear in front of the bankruptcy judge to make your case. The judge will review your case and decide whether or not to discharge your debt.

Magistrate Court

A magistrate court is a court that deals with minor criminal offenses and civil cases. Magistrate courts are also known as small claims courts or people's courts. In the United States, magistrate courts are usually overseen by a district judge. Magistrate courts typically have jurisdiction over misdemeanor criminal offenses, traffic offenses, and small civil claims. Misdemeanor offenses are typically punishable by fine or imprisonment for less than one year. Traffic offenses include offenses such as speeding and driving without a valid license. Small civil claims typically involve disputes over money or property worth less than a certain amount of money. Magistrate courts typically have very limited powers compared to other types of courts.

Article Courts

An article court, also known as a legislative court, is a lower-level court that hears less serious cases than those handled by superior courts. There are two types of article courts in the United States: magistrate courts and district courts. Magistrate courts, also known as small claim or limited jurisdiction courts, handle minor criminal offenses and civil cases. District courts, on the other hand, have general jurisdiction and can hear any type of case except for those that are specifically assigned to another court. Article courts were established by the Judiciary Act of 1789, which created the federal court system. The act divided the country into judicial districts and established district courts in each district. These courts were given the power to hear all cases arising under federal law, including bankruptcy, piracy, and treason.
