Online court records are not the same as background checks
Please note that in some states the use of information obtained from an online court record to deny a person employment, deny a rental agreement, or take any other adverse action against a person is prohibited by law.
Users of the system have the responsibility to verify the accuracy, currency and completeness of the information.
CriminalCourts do not conduct criminal background checks. Criminal background checks are not generally available to the general public. Criminal background checks are not the same as searching an online court record and should not be treated or understood to be a substitute. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Division of Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), is the central repository for criminal history information for the state of Florida. In order to obtain a criminal history record check, go to http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Criminal-History-Records/Florida-Checks.aspx
CivilOnline civil court records are not the official records of the court and may not reflect the official court file available at the court itself. There are a variety of reasons for this:
- some records are sealed
- others are in paper-accessible files only
- others are so old they are only available in the court's archive, not online
Defendants with active warrants will not populate in search results pursuant to the Florida Rules of Court Procedure until served.
