Alaska Federal Courts – Locations, Hours & Phone Numbers
Alaska Federal courts refer to the United States federal court systems present in the state of Alaska. As of now, seven state federal courts are operating in Alaska. The state federal courts in Alaska include two U.S Federal Buildings and Courthouse in Anchorage, two U.S Federal Buildings & Courthouse in Fairbanks, a Federal & Territorial Building in Juneau, and a U.S Federal Building in Ketchikan.
The Alaska Federal Court is a place where legal proceedings and hearings take place. Furthermore, you can obtain information related to a particular case from the Alaska Federal Courts. The information you can obtain from the court includes the case files, transcripts and exhibits taken and collated during the procedure or hearing. The type of records you can obtain depends on the case i.e. whether it’s a criminal case or a civil one. Depending on the case, you can obtain anything from property ownership documents to arrest records. There are a number of reasons to request a court record including:
- Conducting background checks before hiring someone or selling someone a valuable such as a home or automobile
- Acquiring criminal records
- Proving ownership of property
- Filling for a marriage license
- Personal research in order to find out about a person’s maiden name, DOB, age etc
There are two ways of obtaining court records: in person and online. Often, navigating through all the courts to locate the record you want can be difficult. Therefore, obtaining court records in person may not be such a great idea. Fortunately, there is another way and that way is obtaining the court record you want online. Although they are a bit expensive, online databases can give you access to court records without much ado.
The government maintains digital copies of most case files, and you can access these using the online PACER system. If you have an account on PACER, you can use the system’s Case Locator to search and locate Alaska Federal Court case information.
