New Jersey Court Records

The New Jersey Court Records website helps the public learn the various types of courts in The Garden State and understand their functions and jurisdictions. In addition to explaining the New Jersey Court System, it also provides search tools and informational guides to help those looking for the records of these courts.

The New Jersey Court Records website grants open access to these records in accordance with the New Jersey Open Public Records Act enacted in 2002. This Act clearly establishes the public’s right to view and make copies of non-confidential public records. It covers the release of court records as well as other public records from government bodies at all levels in the state.

Besides court records, the New Jersey Court Records website provides quick and open access to crime data, background checks, police reports, sex offender information, jail information, and vital records. These records are accessible for all 33 New Jersey counties, but search results and available records vary from county to county. By facilitating open access to these public records, the New Jersey Court Records website helps the state abide by the commitment to keep the United States a fair and just society for all.
