Court records in Ohio are easy to find. They?re located online, in any courthouse, and even at the state level. The state level is the one many Ohio residents choose to look for, but it?s not always the best solution. For many, it?s far easier to look locally than to look with the state. Unless you?re near the state courthouse and have several hours to spend asking for help, a local search is much simpler. You can perform this type of search easily by visiting the website of the county courthouse you believe might contain court records for the person you?re interested in looking up.
All you need to do is locate the court records option and enter the name of the person you want to search to find all the necessary information. It?s there for your viewing pleasure if that person has any court records in that county. If not, then that person is either very well behaved or has court records in another county. This is when it might become useful to go to the state level, pay the fees, fill out the paperwork, and request to view copies of information you?d like to view. You cannot have certified copies of any of this information unless you are the person listed on the record, their legal rep, or an immediate member of their family. Anyone can view anything made public, but not just anyone can have copies of that information without the proper permission or identification noted by the state.
