Court Records, Directory And News in AR
Each of Arkansas's 75 counties has at least one circuit court. Arkansas's circuit courts hear criminal, civil, domestic violence, juvenile, and probate matters. Arkansas's district courts hear smaller-value civil cases and criminal misdemeanors. There are also two branches of the Arkansas appellate court system – the Court of Appeals, and the Arkansas Supreme Court. Some Arkansas cities also have municipal (city) courts which mainly handle violations of city ordinances.
If you're looking for Arkansas public court records, the state's CourtConnect service will provide you with basic case information and a list of case activity based on a search of party name or case number. This online database includes a limited number of counties, but additional counties are being added. Although most Arkansas court records can't be viewed online, the majority are considered public record and are available for inspection and copying. As policies vary, contact the Arkansas clerk of courts office for your county if you're seeking court records in Arkansas. The Arkansas Judiciary's website (https://courts.arkansas.gov/) also provides several helpful links where you can search for a wide variety of information including Supreme Court opinions and current Supreme Court cases, court rules, criminal justice agency contact information, and Arkansas laws.
