Sebastian County, Arkansas Court Records
Court records can be helpful in the processes of people finding, case researching or background checking. Local court records and case dockets can be found through many online independent companies or directly through the local government agencies.
The Arkansas Judiciary System is comprised of three main courts: the circuit courts, district courts, and city courts. Circuit courts have general jurisdiction and handle cases that are above the jurisdiction of the other courts. Criminal cases include felonies, and civil cases include general claims for more than $5,000. District courts have more specified jurisdiction and typically hear cases involving misdemeanors and civil claims for less than $5,000. More information on the small claims court can be found at http://courts.arkansas.gov/documents/small_claims_info.pdf. City courts are in areas of lower population where district courts do not exist.
The Arkansas Supreme Court typically only hears cases that are appealed from trial courts. A library for the Supreme Courts is located at http://courts.arkansas.gov/library/index.cfm. An online docket search for the active cases in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals can be found at http://courts.state.ar.us/dockets/docket_search.cfm.
