State court websites

This page provides judicial branch links for each state, focusing on the administrative office of the courts, the court of last resort, any intermediate appellate courts, and each trial court level.  The court structure chart summarize the key features of each state's court organization.

To simplify finding court addresses, we have created new pages for some state trial courts to provide comprehensive contact information and will gradually add links to specific district or courthouse Web sites on those pages rather than on this index page.

We welcome the submission of links to court Web sites. Send your submissions here.

Online court records are not the same as background checks. Here's why not.
