Court Records, Directory And News in VT
The lowest level of the Vermont State Court system consists of its Vermont's Environmental Court, Probate Courts, and the Vermont Judicial Branch. Vermont's Probate Courts handle probate/estate issues, and adoption, mental health, and miscellaneous civil cases. Vermont's Environmental Court exclusively hears appeals of administrative agency decisions, and the Vermont Judicial Bureau mainly hears traffic and ordinance infractions. The next level of Vermont's court system includes the state's Family Courts, which hear mental health, juvenile, and domestic relations cases, the Vermont Superior Courts, which handle tort, contract, real property, small claims, and other civil appeals, and Vermont's District Courts, which also hear civil appeals as well as cases relating to felony and misdemeanor charges. If you're seeking information regarding a Vermont court case, the Vermont Judiciary's website (www.vermontjudiciary.org) provides Vermont court forms, civil court opinions, and additional features including a Vermont child support calculator. If you're trying to get copies of Vermont court documents, you will need to contact the Superior Court clerk for the county in which the case was heard. Although most Vermont court records are considered public record, the method of obtaining copies of these varies by court.
