  • How do I search in Georgia for a lien on a company?
    The Georgia Superior court clerks' cooperative authority's website provides the general public with a free search. The lookup is based on a name search. The search includes separate instructions regarding entering individuals' names, which means the search is not always an individual but an entity. Searching the owners' names can help with a more comprehensive search. You can also conduct a business entity search through the Office of the Georgia Secretary of State, corporation division, and see the listed officers' names, which is also an open public search.
  • How do I find out in Georgia if I have a Warrant, Subpoena, Etc.?
    Through searching courts, these (Warrant Subpoenas Etc) are generally issued by judges. There are specific police departments that will show warrants on their web pages, but they tend to be issued by the judges. These records are primarily on the county level since most criminal cases arise from county court. Georgia's state website has a page titled "Learning about Warrants" it says what you can do and your right when requesting warrant information.
  • Where do I find a copy of a divorce confirmation letter in Georgia?
    The Georgia Department of health issues divorce confirmation letters if you don't need an official certificate (which you can get directly from the county court clerk). Go to the department's website and search for Divorce Confirmations. Under the required information, you will find the request form; there's a ten-dollar fee for the department to search. The confirmation letter is sent by mail, and so is the request.
  • Where can I find my arrears on child support in Georgia, and if I have a warrant for my arrest?
    It depends on where in Georgia. Certain cities, such as the Atlanta Municipal Court, make it easy and allow an open online search of warrants. In some cases, the law enforcement's website also puts out a warrant page; if you know which area, there may be another user who can help.
  • How can I determine if my husband has filed for divorce in Georgia?
    You can look up individual cases online by going to the superior court's search page (county level). These searches can be found through gov. county pages, either from this site or search engines. When using search engines, make sure it is a government site, and it can take some navigation; you can always use the search window within site. Fulton county's search, for example, is hidden; there's a link that mentions "Acquire Copies," which carries a fee and is not just the information but copies from the case file. If you don't need case file copies, you can go to Online Options/judicial case search on that same menu. If you only know the party name, a drop-down will change it from a citation or case number search. I searched "All Superior" and "All case records," and one of the first cases I noticed was a divorce filing.
  • Where can I find in Georgia the disposition of a criminal case?
    You can either request copies of criminal cases directly from the court clerk online or from automated civil case searches which offer an overview and sometimes more. A majority of these cases are at the county level, and a list of the counties in a drop-down menu on the top right of this page will take you to the county page, from there you can begin by clicking on the courts' link and browse to find the case you're looking for. Fulton and Clayton are two which I used, and both had free cases online.
  • Where can I find in Georgia, my criminal records?
    Criminal records are a focal part of background checks being requested. Police departments and sheriff's offices provide many background and criminal checks. The state also offers a felon search that can be conducted online instantly. There is no control over how much criminal information/background is disclosed to the public and found on these reports. For more detailed information, a researcher can go to the courthouse where the criminal trial was held and view case records. Many courthouses have a way in which the public can search and request copies of their filings. The methods available to you are based on the custodians of the record, and due to this reason, some data is more accessible to obtain than others. There are restrictions as to the type of record an individual is requesting. Many public records contain personal information, so the provider must maintain a balance between public record laws and privacy. Using private sources can have fewer restrictions and difficulty. Numerous companies use private background check services to pre-screen potential employees. Check online for published news of past arrests; these may still be on the net. Try to search as the person who may be looking thoroughly online for any data, including news media, social media, and others.
