    Default How to Obtain Court Records

    I am conducting legal research for the state of: New York

    Hi, I dont know if im in the right area for this post

    I was in an accident when I was a kid and a court appointed trust was put in place, unfortunately both my parents have passed and im living overseas so have no access to track it down.
    I think I might have found the court records (well a brief description) what I am wondering is how to track down the records and if they could help me. This was in the 1980s in NY.
    The record I have found only give brief description of date index number, plaintiff and defendant. How do I get full records and judgements (im not in US at moment)Any help would be much appreciated

    You can try contacting the court in which the case was heard and see if they will allow you to order the record. Generally speaking a court will require prepayment for a record and a pre-addressed envelope with sufficient postage for them to return the record to you, but court policies do vary.
