    You can check with the court in that county. You can find and view procedures to fling for divorces. The Florida Court Records link above will land on the state's courts page. From there, click on Resources and Services tab, then on Family Courts. The information includes family court basics, jurisdictions, process maps and forms which contain instructions for Florida family law rules and procedures.

    There are several factors which affect whether you can obtain official police reports of suicides. Was the report of an attempt or is the person deceased? Is the case currently under investigation? Police reports are generally public record unless they've been sealed or still under an ongoing investigation. When a public record is denied, you will get a reply stating the reason for the request being turned down.

    Enter the case number in the court search form's "Keyword" box above (which searches both words and numbers). You do not need to enter the entire case number since it's a general keyword search. You can search as many times as needed as it's open to the public freely. It is a good preliminary search that helps when looking for case information.

    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 tendency of the will being amended after the recording. When a resident of Florida passes away, the person which is in possession the will is required to 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, are you an interested party named in the will. Check both official records (recorded documents such as deeds) and court records.

    A majority of 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 in regard to 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.

    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, they are: license information, secondary locations, disciplinary actions, subordinate practitioners and practitioner profile. The practitioner’s profile shows the doctor’s primary practice address, medic-aid (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 physicians that were retired, deceased, others which their license status currently null and void, voluntarily relinquished, holds as well as clear and active. You can still see the addresses of the physicians which have retired, relinquished their license, are on hold and other in-active status.

    Address searches show family and spouse's names. If you know any of those, or even a roommate, a thorough address search will show other residents living at that address. Or just do a reverse address search and get resident information. There are many possibilities, depends on how much you already know. If you know where parents, any relatives, spouse, former spouse, roommates and friends reside, you can then run an address search and see residents' last names. Hard to say without knowing all the facts, details, how much is known about the arrest and where did the information about the arrest come from?

    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.

    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.
