Courts in Alaska
Court Records, Directory And News in AK
Alaska's trial courts are called district courts and superior courts. District courts hear the majority of domestic violence, small claims, and misdemeanor cases, and superior courts hear all types of civil and criminal cases. If you're filing an appeal of a district court decision, you would file this in superior court. Alaska's court system also includes its court of appeals and the Alaska Supreme Court. There are no municipal (city) courts in Alaska.
You can obtain a number of Alaska court forms on their website, at http://www.courts.alaska.gov/forms.htm. If you're seeking state court records, you can use the Alaska Court View system (http://www.courtrecords.alaska.gov/) to obtain information including the names of the parties, the type of case, and a copy of the court docket. You can also find information regarding wills in Alaska, and can even pay your traffic ticket online via Court View. If you're simply trying to find out if someone has a criminal record in Alaska, you may get all of the information you need from this online database. However, if you want to get copies of court documents in Alaska, you must contact the court in question via phone, in writing, or in-person.
