  • Search for 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 how to enter individuals' name, which means the search is not always an individual, as opposed to 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 when someone was arrested if the case was dismissed?
    You can look up the arrests as they come out and go back in time as much as possible. Old publications also have arrests in them. The case may still be available at the courthouse. You can check by going there, I'm not sure how in depth online filing searches will be. You will need to dig it up like an investigator, if there's no filing at the courthouse, you can request arrest report directly from the police department, considering you know which department made the arrest.
