Louisiana Court Records

The judicial power of the state, which is the power to interpret the Constitution and the laws of this state, is vested in the Judicial Branch of Government, made up of a supreme court, courts of appeal, district courts and other courts authorized by the Constitution. The supreme court is Louisiana's highest court and is domiciled in the City of New Orleans. In the Louisiana court structure there are 5 courts of appeal, 42 district courts, 5 family or juvenile courts, 50 city courts and 3 parish courts. The trial court of general jurisdiction in Louisiana is the district court. District courts generally have authority to handle all civil and criminal cases. Civil cases involve actions to enforce, correct or protect private rights. In general civil cases include all types of actions other than criminal proceedings. The city courts are courts of record. This means that their decisions are reviewed on appeal on the record, as opposed to being tried anew in a higher court. City courts generally exercise concurrent jurisdiction with the district court in civil cases where the amount in controversy does not exceed $15,000. In criminal matters, they generally have jurisdiction over ordinance violations and misdemeanor violations of state law. Louisiana's 3 parish courts are distinguishable from city courts only in that they are always staffed by full-time judges and their jurisdiction is a bit broader. Parish courts exercise jurisdiction in civil cases worth up to $10,000 and criminal cases punishable by fines of $1,000 or less, or imprisonment of six months or less. Cases are appealable from the parish courts directly to the courts of appeal.

From here you are able to inquire on Louisiana state case records including docket entries, parties, judgments, and charges in public courts. In common law jurisdictions, a court of record is a court that keeps permanent records of its proceedings. Judgments of a trial court of record are normally subject to appellate review. In many jurisdictions, all courts are courts of record. In many jurisdictions, courts that have the power to fine or imprison must be courts of record. In almost all jurisdictions, a court of record will have a court clerk whose primary duty is to maintain the permanent records. Traditionally, a court of record was required to have its own unique seal, which was used to authenticate its judgments and copies of its records.

Testimonials

I never knew that so much criminal data is available online. Your site is amazing, I have a new hobby!
Mark B, Newport, RI

I am a retired police officer and letme tell you that the information that you have you could only access if you were in law enforcement. This is truly revolutionary that people can check criminal records online.
Frank S, Toledo, OH

To be honest I am always skeptical of these investigative sites on the net and I was duped a few times. Your site has real records and not a bunch of links to other sites.
Victor T, Wilmington, NC

I am on the Board for our State Wide Private Investigator Association (PIAU). I have recommended your site and services to all our members.
Alan P, Los Angeles, CA

Leena J – Staten Island, NY

“You have an extremely powerful criminal search engine. With just one quick search I was able to search for all kinds of criminal and court records and plus do a sex offender check. Fantastic job”
Lynda R – Princeton, NJ

“Through your service, I was able to find a lawsuit which was filed against me more than 15 years ago. I never thought possible that such old data exists online”
Darren K – Milwaukee, WI

“With your information, I feel like I have every courthouse and their records under my fingertips. Good job on compiling such a huge database!”
Steve E – Lancaster, PA

“You guys are the best. I am adopted and I used your service to help me find my birth mother. I was almost 45 and she was over 70, but better late than never. Without you guys I never would have tracked her down. Thanks again.”
Lucia P

“Thanks to your site I was able to track down over 18 dear friends from the Hudson High School Class of '78 and remind them to attend their 30 year class reunion. I missed them so much and can't thank you enough for helping us to reunite.”
Joanie L.
