  • Question: House fire March 24, 1979
    By: Kiki
    Answer: Try the fire department local to that address. Fire incident record requests are made to county/city fire department for specific addresses. The fire department's site may even have the form available on their site. Having the exact date is helpful since it will probably be required to provide the exact date in order to submit a valid request. The Nebraska fire marshall's website has the Request for Fire Report form available for download and tells you where to submit the request. These requests are for "fire or incident investigation report" according to the fire marshall's website. Below is what's required as stated on their forms to make the request.

    Answer: The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services issues divorce records occurring from 1909 to today. Their website provides the forms online, but, seems that you can only mail it in.

  • Question: How easy would it be to get an arrest report of someone in Nebraska?
    By: anthony
    Answer: There are ninety three counties in Nebraska, each with their own individual law enforcement department. These individual departments make the majority of arrests throughout the state. Whether police or sheriffs departments, will generally have a site and link to their records division. The records division's webpage reveals the qualifications to obtain a police report from them. Therefore, it's important to point out where the arrest occurred. Also, requestor's involvement or relation to the case can be a factor, such as the attorney, the arrested individual and so forth. If there arrest was recent, inmate lists can show which arrestees are held at a particular facility.
