• How can I get completely free records on myself?
    It's easier to look up records of your self 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 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.) For other court filing, which are also free to the public depending on the area, the county court website offers free online open public searches. The Orange county clerk's webpage is a good example, all you need is a 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 by using the court search below mentioned earlier, there is an option 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 any trouble finding specific records, you'll have to be more specific as to which record and where so that others can help.

  • How to search for divorce records in Florida?
    If you are aware of 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, specially 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. Note that 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 health issues divorce abstracts from 6/1927 to today. The clerk office in the county where the divorces occurred has records prior to that period. If you need the entire record, judgment, divorce decree or other documents of the dissolution, you will also need to go to the county clerk, as the department of health only provides abstract reports (of divorces earlier than sixty days). Requests for this document are without restrictions, which means that 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 above 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.

  • Searching For Property Owner Information From Only A Street Address?
    The ease of gathering information online has made a novice investigator out of web users. When starting out, chances are you will see a good amount of information, some of it unexpected. Simply entering a name or address in your search engine, 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. Name of the property owner is a different matter. It is considered public record, so what is the problem? With the advancements in technology, access to recorded documents should be easy, specially when the valuations are made accessible online. The reason is privacy protections, a major 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 for the public to obtain. 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 be different directly affecting the 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 have their own policies which need to 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 is it making things easier for the department, it is also doing the same for the individual searching. It is simply just more challenging in some states than others, such as California, New York and a few others. The law guaranteeing the access to public records does not provide for its ease of retrieval or costs as long as it is not unjustly prohibitive. You can successfully begin with government websites which deal with deeds and recorded documents. Private entities request much of their data from public entities also for their own use or resell, meaning that the government sources are generally the source of all information you will be seeking.
