Volusia County Court Records

Volusia court records are official records of judicial proceedings filed and maintained by court clerks. Court records generally include documents like notices of petition, warrants, sworn declarations, motions, pleadings, transcripts, log notes, audio and video recordings of legal proceedings, electronic recordings, affidavits, final judgments, and associated materials maintained by the court in a judicial proceeding in Volusia County, Florida.

Court records play a huge role in pursuing fairness, transparency, and justice in court proceedings. The transcripts, audio, and video recordings of a trial, for example, preserve the words said in the courtroom verbatim. The public nature of court records ensures balance in the judicial system and serves as a precedent for future court cases in Florida.

Are Court Records Public in Volusia County?

Yes. In line with Rule 2.420, Florida Rules of Judicial Administration, the public shall have access to all records of the judicial arm of government, irrespective of form, created, received, or filed in the official business of any judicial branch of government. Such records are explicitly stated in section (b) as court and administrative records.

This right of access is, however, not absolute. Information contained within a court record may be exempt from public disclosure under the Rule of Judicial Administration or pursuant to an order of the court, the Constitution of Florida, or other state or federal laws. Rule 2.420 (c) provides that the following court records shall be confidential:

  • Copies of arrest and search warrants and accompanying affidavits in possession of a judge, clerk, or other court staff until the warrant is executed or becomes incapable of execution.
  • All records listed as confidential under state and federal laws and Florida or the United States Constitution.
  • All records deemed confidential by an order of the court.
  • All records where confidentiality is mandated to prevent interference with judicial proceedings and law enforcement investigations.
  • Records that may endanger the safety and privacy of an innocent person if released.
  • Records that protect industrial property rights and government interests.

Volusia County Court Records Online

Third-party, public record search tools are an alternative means to find Volusia County court records online. Third-party sites like courtrecords.us are independent service providers that compile information from multiple sources, including Volusia courts. However, they are not government-affiliated. Unlike county websites, third-party sites catalog court records and other public records from multiple jurisdictions in the US and make them accessible to users in and out of Florida.

A third-party search site is an excellent place to begin research when determining what county or court has jurisdiction over a record. This is because the researcher can set his search options to all courts in the state rather than a search limited to one municipality or jurisdiction. To obtain a court record, the searcher must at least know the party's full name and the county or state where the case or judgment was given.

Although third-party sites are a great search tool, they are often expensive. They can cost as much as $0.10 to view a page, $2.50 for an audio file, and $20 - $30 for a single document copy. Also, the information on these sites may be incomplete, inaccurate, or outdated.
