Courts in Missouri
Court Records, Directory And News in MO
The Missouri State Court system consists of four levels of courts. Its lowest courts are the Missouri Municipal courts, which exclusively handle traffic cases and ordinance violations. Above that are Missouri's 45 Circuit Courts. Circuit Courts handle all civil cases as well as domestic relations, criminal, and juvenile cases. Missouri is divided into 3 court districts, each with its own Court of Appeals. These hear civil, criminal, and administrative agency appeals. The Missouri Supreme Court is the highest court in the state and hears all types of appeals and any case involving a potential death penalty sentence.

Missouri's Case.net system (www.case.net) provides online access to information regarding Missouri public records, including some Missouri court records as well as information from Missouri's Fine Collection Center. The 'Your Missouri Courts' website also provides an extensive self-help section (http://www.courts.mo.gov/page.jsp?id=5240) where you can find forms and information regarding many types of Missouri court cases. Missouri also offers an e-filing system where registered users can file Missouri court documents online, but this is generally only available to attorneys. See http://www.courts.mo.gov/page.jsp?id=46542 for more information regarding e-filing.
