Massachusetts Court Records

The Massachusetts Court Records website helps the public understand the structure of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ judicial system. It identifies the different types of courts available in the cities and counties of the state and explains their functions and jurisdictions.

Besides shedding light on the Commonwealth’s court system, the Massachusetts Court Records website also helps citizens gain access to court records. It provides direct access to some of these records through its search tools and provides informational guides to help those looking for copies of Massachusetts court records. In accordance with the Massachusetts Public Records Act, the Massachusetts Court Records website offers open access to everyone and does not require statement of purpose from its users.

Other public records accessible from the Massachusetts Court Records website include crime data, background checks, police reports, jail information, sex offender information, and vital records. Citizens can find these records for all 14 counties of the Commonwealth, but search results and available records will vary from county to county. By providing open access to public records, the Massachusetts Court Records website helps citizens of the Bay State create a free, fair, and just society as promised in the Constitution of the United States.
