Courthouse Researcher

What is courthouse research?

Court research means going to the courthouse and sort out court records to determine which records are relevant for your case, and it may involve research on previous rulings or laws. If you are contesting a lawsuit, document research and retrieval becomes essential to investigate and render further strength to your case. Courthouse research can be an extremely impeding process because old court records can be challenging to trace. It may take many hours to find some documents. The older the records are, the more difficult to find them usually.

What is the need of courthouse research and document retrieval?

Attorneys and private parties need court research to support their cases in civil proceedings and criminal prosecutions. Judges can take advantage of court research to provide explicitness on a decision and guide their judgment. So, court research and document retrieval help gain knowledge pertaining to your case. Previous rulings or precedents be able to establish and build your defense or prosecution in court.

For instance, land title deeds are the best way to trace the history of your land. They also include information about the buyer, which is helpful for those conducting genetic research. The title deed generally contains the first owner’s name, the new owner’s name, and the date of purchase. It symbolizes the legal transfer of property from one person to another. Depending on the information you wish to obtain, there might be documents other than title deeds that will give this information. For instance, there might be a segment of records termed ‘land taken for back taxes’ that provides the landowner’s details. Mortgage records, leases, and probate records can also give details on land ownership. 

Finding personal records such as birth certificates, death certificates, marriage records, divorce records, wills and testaments, medical records, real property records, and vehicle ownership records are generally a frustrating and challenging process. 

Usually, the records are available and searched jurisdictions where the documents were executed and the person looking for the records residing. There is no standard for how these records should be kept and managed. Some may be stored in small record rooms, whereas others may be stored in big storehouse building. Security generally differs between jurisdictions; the records you wish to obtain may be stored under lock and other restraints put on them. You may or may not be permitted to obtain copies of these records. 

Records retrieved from government offices for admittance into legal processes usually require certification from the public official charged with the custody of the records. Certified copies of original records affirm that the record is a genuine, authentic, and perfect copy of the original. Banks, corporations, realtors, lenders, and legal professionals rely on certified copies of public records for the business. Yet, many courthouses throughout the country are poorly equipped or inexperienced to provide them speedily and in good condition. We know the market demand and formed a network of committed vendors and a platform that simplifies document delivery online.
