Public Records Resources & Searches
Records containing your information such as court filings, either criminal or civil, bankruptcies, arrests, inmate lists and any other record considered public, are mainly obtained from government entities, agencies and departments where they originate. Amongst the largest contributors of public records are courts. Access to public records must be available to anyone in accordance to open records laws and freedom of information act (FOIA).
Requests to have information updated, corrected, removed in part or entirely, must be submitted to the source of the record. Unless the source of the information has an order to remove the information from public data, the record can continue to be available to any individual, agency or private entity. Information not removed at the original agency or department can continue to reappear in any external source which routinely update their data. Once the order to remove or expunge the record is granted, the source of the information can stop public access in the future. Proof of order and an opt out application can be submitted to Open Public Records and have the record removed. All opt out requests must include proof of that particular record being sealed from public records.
We aim to provide the most complete public data possible. We do not remove, alter or modify public information without proper documentation, such as an official court order. Sources of the data are listed within the record, you may use the link and view instructions in removing data from public view.
