Background Check VS.
            Record Request

The Clerk's Office maintains court and
marriage records.  If you are doing a
blanket search for a possible offender, this
is a background check rather than a request
for an existing record.  Our office does not
provide background checks.  Arresting
agencies do background checks for a fee.
