About Washington Open Public Record

The Washington State Public Records Act is the vehicle by which the general public may obtain access to the documents and information of Washington state government, defined as all records generated and maintained by state and local government agencies. Online information from the Washington State Attorney General describes which records are available and how to request them. Also detailed are those records which are exempted from disclosure and the process to be followed in the event a request for records is denied. The Washington State Public Records Act also requires each state agency to employ a Public Records Officer and a response time of no more than five business days to each request for public records.

  • How to find a will?
    Finding the will itself before the person is deceased is not easy, and not generally considered public record. However, typically, when the person dies, the executor files the will with the court, most likely at the venue where the decedent died. You may need to check other county clerks throughout the state. Once the will is filed with the court, it is then public record. This is the general rule of thumb when it comes to wills and probate, these can be different from one state or court to another. A court records search where you believe the filing would take place is a good starting point.

For records before that, the county auditor is the custodian and can provide them.
