Obtain Copies of Documents

Copies are available in the following types and methods:

  • Documents Online – We have a significant number of documents that are available online. Copies of online documents printed using your computer are $1.00 per page plus a $2.50 convenience fee per credit card transaction. Another option is to open an escrow account with our office which can be used to pay for online copies without incurring a convenience fee.
  • Copies Sent by Email – These are uncertified documents that a clerk sends to the customer via email. These copies can be requested by phone, mail, email, or in person. The cost is $1.00 per page.
  • Paper Copies made by Clerk – These are paper copies that are made at our office by a clerk. These copies can be requested by phone, mail, email, or in person. The cost for this service is $1.00 per page.
  • Certified Copies – This is when the Clerk makes a paper copy and places a stamp on it to certify that it is an accurate and complete reproduction of the original document. Certified copies may be requested by phone, mail, email, or in person. There is a $5.00 per document charge for the certification service plus an additional cost of $1.00 per page.

To request copies, call or email your request to the division that will have the record you are requesting. Please be as specific as possible (full name, cause number, etc). If you are planning to pay with a credit card, please include your phone number so a clerk may contact you for payment information. Please do not send your credit card number in an email.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards. A $2.50 convenience fee applies to credit card payments. We also accept cash, personal checks and money orders. Please do not send cash in the mail.
