Not all fields are required.
The required search criteria must include one of the following:
Last Name and First name
The most efficient way to search for a case is by case number or ticket number.
Without a case or ticket number, search by using first name and last name to find the case.
If the minimal search above has too many results, try to provide as much information as possible to help retrieve results in a timely manner.
Including Case Year, Case Type or Party Code are easy ways to narrow your results.
You must always include a first and last name when performing a name search.
If including a middle name, try only including the first letter of the middle name; middle name is not always present on a case.
Company names may be entered in a variety of ways, try different variations to help find the information needed.
Case numbers include a year, a three letter case code, and a six digit sequence.
Example criminal/traffic case numbers:
2022 CR A 001234
2022 CR B 001234
2022 TR C 123456
2022 TR D 123456
2022 TR P 123456
Example civil case numbers:
2022 CVE 001234
