Records/Copy Requests & Public Access Terminals:
Access to circuit court cases and documents is available to the public using the Courthouse WCCA application on the public access workstations in the courthouse. We offer three public terminals in in the Clerk of Courts Office, room 110. There is only space for one individual at a time to review records. Please do not bring children or other individuals not involved in reviewing records.
