  • How can I find my court records, free and online, in Florida?
    It depends on the county; not all counties have their records online freely, like Orange county, FL. Since you know where they are, you can check with the clerk's web page; that's where Orange county has its free search. Hillsborough County, Collier County Clerk of the Circuit Court, Alachua County, Broward, Pinellas, and others are too many to list.

  • How can I get arrest records from 1985 in Florida?
    Most arrests are at the county or city level, from local law enforcement. Having a case number is helpful. You can find records of arrests using many free sources online; you will need to dig up some of them. Official police reports are different; they are requested from the department which made the arrest—sometimes requested by defense attorneys for their case. Records of arrest, which means any recorded information regarding an arrest, can be found in different sources. You can pull up a case from an earlier time and see specifics about the prosecution, filed charges, and more. Periodicals have archived reports also, and they report on arrests. Without knowing where the arrest happened, specific sources can't be suggested. The FL department of corrections has a free public search that shows photos of the prisoners. A name search can be conducted; many offenders are listed there and worth checking. You can see a list of their offenses going back many years, showing arrests/offenses and dates.

  • How can I retrieve a will and trust documents from a person who died in Florida?
    You can check into court records if the will went through probate, then retrieve it either online or by going to the courthouse records department, depending on the particular court. In some cases, the will is recorded. However, attorneys have advised not to do so due to privacy concerns and the tendency of the will to be amended after the recording. When a resident of Florida passes away, the person in possession of the will must turn it over to the court clerk where the deceased lived. You can check more about the law and how it applies to you, such as whether you are mentioned in that will or are an interested party named in the will. Check both official records (recorded documents such as deeds) and court records.

  • Where do I find in Florida, my criminal records?
    You can either do the check yourself or have the file (the Florida Department of Law Enforcement) do it for you by simply requesting it online. Or you can look up court records and see other information such as lawsuits, judgments, etc. If the charges are recent, you can check the police department's website for their inmate/in-custody lists. If it is going to trial soon, the criminal court calendar is another free search you can do. These last ones are pre-conviction, so they would probably not appear on the file's criminal records search.

  • Where can I find access in Florida to a police report for someone I posted a bond for?
    Check the website of the police station which made the arrest. You can find out who can get one and how to do it. Going through the police may not be the only way, but one of the most common ways to get a police report. Policies require only persons related to the case to obtain the police report, and different departments may not have the same policy in requesting a report.

  • Where can I search for divorce records in Florida?
    If you know the county where the filing took place, you can go directly to the court's website and see how to order them. Court records are generally public records. Vital records, especially official certificates, are not as easy to obtain as they come with some restrictions depending on the agency. However, court records are under general open records laws and should be available to anyone requesting them. Not all court records are available, such as juvenile records; certain court records can be restricted from public view. However, divorce records should be readily open—Florida's department of health has issued divorce abstracts from 6/1927 to today. The clerk's office in the county where the divorces occurred has records before that period. Suppose you need the entire record, judgment, divorce decree, or other dissolution documents. In that case, you will also need to go to the county clerk, as the health department only provides abstract reports (of divorces earlier than sixty days). Requests for this document are without restrictions, meaning anyone can request them for a fee of four dollars. You will need the document: APPLICATION FOR DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE REPORT (DIVORCE OR ANNULMENT )GRANTED IN FLORIDA. To access this form, click on the link: Florida Marriage Records below under the Florida Free Public Records Directory part of this page (at the top of the page); from there, a menu to the left on the health department's webpage lists a divorce link that will take you to the form.

  • Where can I find in Florida a wanted person and their offense?
    Do you know which department has been given the warrant for the wanted person? Some wanted individuals can be viewed online, for example, Florida's department of corrections absconders list and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's wanted person search. Both show photos. There are also fugitive lists from the Marshall's office. The FDLE and DOC lists allow a search of the entire state at once by the person's name, not just from one county to another. The FDLE results show the offense of the person that's wanted in the profile details. The DOC absconder list has photos/mugshots of the offenders.

  • Where can I find in Florida, an offender's criminal record?
    You can either conduct your own by what is free online or utilize the FDLE service for a background check of criminal records. If you choose to search yourself, you will need to look for not just one but many sites with criminal records, such as inmate lists, absconder/wanted lists, offenders lists, or even criminal court searches, either in person or online. You can begin with this link http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/which will take you to a webpage by Florida law enforcement. There you will see four options for the general public to conduct searches. There are also local police who can provide criminal records. This is why is it important to conduct an address search first for a complete background check. The addresses can show any residences outside of Florida where records can be found. You can go above a typical criminal records search and look up bankruptcies with a free open public records search, please note the coverage as all cases may not appear due to the date of the actions or not electronically entered, archived, and so forth. It is not as simple as going to a single website and getting everything when you are looking for free records, there's no guarantee that you will get everything when you use a service other than your money back. There are so many records out there that can be found that there will often be a lot of data that can be missed.

  • Where can I find access to and a copy of my background check in Florida?
    You can get a criminal background check from the FDLE or individual police/sheriff's departments. The Division of Driver Licenses points to using the Problem Driver Pointer System, which you can see on the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles webpage. Employers can search for drivers' or criminal histories; these checks are conducted separately. If you do get a police report, regardless of whether with the file or not, please let others know what your thoughts are on the type of search it was. Did it find everything or anything else?

  • Where can I find my marriage License in Florida?
    Marriage licenses are issued from the county where they take place by the clerk/court. The state uses a private company if you know which county, their site can tell you how to request it. Florida Department of Health states on its website that requests by email will make your email address public. Any requests by email to the department are public, and they warn you of this. I'd like to see whether the same is true for private companies filling the role of providing the same services on behalf of the state. Florida doe has this policy not just for marriage records requests but for many other, if not all, records requests which disclose your email address. Check disclosure policies regarding your specific request first.

  • How do I locate a Doctor in Florida?
    You can view the address either by physicians' names or practice/business names by using Florida's department of health's medical license search online. There are five tabs when you locate the physician's name or practice: license information, secondary locations, disciplinary actions, subordinate practitioners, and practitioner profile. The practitioner's profile shows the doctor's primary practice address, Medicaid (participation in the program), staff privileges, institution name, email address, other state licenses, and additional information under the other tabs. The doctor's license does not need to be active to view this information. The results I found included retired, deceased physicians, and others whose license status is currently null and void, voluntarily relinquished, held, and clear and active. You can still see the addresses of the physicians who have retired, lost their licenses, are on hold, and have other inactive statuses.

  • Where can I retrieve someone's death certificate if they died in Florida but were buried in North Carolina?
    Generally, the event of the death needs to be recorded with the local health department within a certain period, about three days or more. The state also has to get the death notice within a certain period. This makes me think of Florida!

  • How can I find in Florida how I can get completely free records on myself?
    It's easier to look up records of yourself since much of the privacy laws will not be a factor. You can also see how easy it is to find information about yourself. To find records, many of them free, they will need to be found or dug up. Another advantage you have over looking for records of another is that you know where to look and do not have to rely on a list of past addresses. If you're looking to start with free records, which I recommended since you have little to lose other than time, try the free case search on this page (under Recent divorce records, court criminal actions, civil lawsuits, and bankruptcy filings.) The county court website offers free online open public searches for another court filing, which are also accessible to the public depending on the area. The Orange county clerk's webpage is a good example; all you need is the last name; I was able to view criminal cases from traffic to felonies. The results for this one are detailed, showing offenses, hearings, notices, motions, and more. If you find a case using the court search mentioned below, there is an option for Recent divorce records, court criminal actions, civil lawsuits, and bankruptcy filings. To receive updates when something new happens (filing, motions, notices, etc...) with that case (this is also free). Good luck; if you're having trouble finding specific records, you'll have to be more specific about which record and where so that others can help.

    Divorces can be found by searching online court records in individual Circuit courts. Circuit courts in Florida have general jurisdiction over cases, including divorces. There's a free case search webpage for courts individually, but maybe not all; the ones that were easy to find were in Hillsborough, Orange, Broward, Lee, Escambia, and a few others.

  • Where can I find access to a property owner in Florida when I only know the street address?
    The ease of gathering information online has made a novice investigator out of web users. When starting, chances are you will see a good amount of information, some unexpected. Enter a name or address in your search engine; it will do just that based on the right keywords. One of the most common searches is for property ownership information and the current value. You will find looking up property values to be much easier, as many companies in the real estate industry will provide it freely. The name of the property owner is a different matter. It is considered a public record, so what is the problem? With technological advancements, access to recorded documents should be easy, especially when the valuations are made accessible online. The reason is privacy protections; a significant contributor is protection from identity theft and other unintended fraudulent consequences. So what does an individual do when running into the problem of privacy policies being in the way of getting public records? After all, you have a right to these records by law. The difference between policy and laws for free access to public records. The laws for obtaining property records are clear. There isn't much debate on whether deeds should be available to the public. However, departments in charge of deeds can set policies as long as it does not violate laws. The freedom of information statutes from state to state can also affect availability. Some state laws are geared toward more transparency than others. This also means that there is no blanket answer to cover all agencies; each has policies that must be followed. Even counties bordering each other can have vastly different procedures. How do you find out about getting the information under an address? Today, nearly all county offices have websites in one form or another. While it is making things easier for the department, it is also doing the same for the individual searching. It is more challenging in some states, such as California, New York, and others. The law guaranteeing access to public records does not provide for its ease of retrieval or costs as long as it is not unjustly prohibitive. You can begin with government websites dealing with deeds and recorded documents. Private entities request much of their data from public entities for their use or resell, meaning that government sources are generally the source of all information you seek.

    This open public record site helps you find where and how to get what you are looking for. It does not provide records; all feeds are from externally produced data. The source of many records is public agencies, whether by county, city or state, or even federal. Looking up names and addresses does not always follow the same path or method, and some are much easier than others and will take more effort, maybe even luck. When you do an address search, mark down all the relatives, you should make a note of all related information as it can be helpful later on. Any info is useful, even the place of birth or, even more important, the date of birth.

  • Where can I find in Florida who has escaped from prison?
    The state of Florida's law enforcement department makes escaped convicts, also called absconders, public. The search includes escapees since January 1991 who have outstanding warrants. The Florida department of corrections has a webpage that will show escapees and those who have been arrested/captured. The page is titled 'Inmate Escape Information List'; you can go to another page that will search under several criteria. A specific database can be chosen under absconders and fugitives. This link http://www.dc.state.fl.us/OffenderSearch/Search.aspxwill take you to the Florida Department of Corrections; select the first database, "Search All Corrections Offender Databases," you will then land on the search page. Under "DC Criminal History - Offense Category," there will be a drop-down menu of offense descriptions; the fifth is escape. The next part confuses people since the results don't simply appear; instead, only a single line link that says "Inmate Release Search Results [Open in New Window]" may appear, click on that, and you will see a list of results showing the inmate release information detail, including the mug shot/photo. These people have been charged with escape, or their case involves it. You can see a list of escaped inmates on the same site by choosing "Inmate Escape Information List" instead of using "Search All Corrections Offender Databases." By clicking on the "Inmate Escape Information List," you will be taken to a search query page similar to the last search. From there, you can leave the fields blank and get the full list; at this time, there are 13, so it is not a long enough list to conduct a name search, especially if you're not sure of the name's spelling. This is a list of inmates who have escaped since January 1990.
