Orange County, CA Public Records

Orange County supports the public's right to access public records for informational purposes or routine business procedures. It is in line with the California Public Records Act, which advocates for timely and transparent services. Orange County public records also contain information on an individual's driving or traffic history, such as tickets and sentences. It is also possible to perform a California license plate lookup to find owners of vehicles via the state DMV site. The state provides public or confidential marriage licenses as well. As expected, public marriage licenses can be looked up online, while confidential licenses are accessed via a court order. State law prohibits the publication of identity information, such as property owner names, without their permission. Though, property ownership may be requested from the county registrar or clerk.

Court Records in Orange County, California

Public remote access to court records is unavailable for some instances like divorce, civil harassment, and child custody for privacy purposes. The court mandates visiting the courthouse if one is not a party to these cases. The courts allow access to high-profile criminal cases, bankruptcies, civil cases, and family law cases, though this is not typically the norm. If one is a party to the case, Orange County court records are available to the public upon request via the Superior Court of Orange County website. The county regulation code 68,152 also considers record retention, setting a 75-year minimum for felonies and general misdemeanors. Orange County courts cannot destroy records that have not reached the period.
