Where can you Look up public records?
Public Records consist of criminal and civil court records, including small claims court, as well as the Official Records (OR Records), for that County. These would include activity and decisions on criminal cases, civil would have information on persons that are a party to a law suit, as well as information concerning the lawsuit, including the plaintiff. This would include divorce records, and more. The OR Records (official records) of the County will include marriages entered into in the County, mortgages, official filings and much more. Property appraisers office will hold records pertaining to property ownership, who the prior owner was, the value of the property, legal description, buildings on the property, etc. This is all done on a county by county basis. Most of the records, with the exception of property records and voter registration, are found at the County Court House at the Clerk of the Court or County Clerk's office. Ask a clerk there for assistance and they will help you with the location of the records and how to find what you are looking for. It is also possible to obtain copies of the documents and/or certified copies for a fee, usually per page. If you have a limited budget take along a legal pad and a couple of pens or pencils and make detailed notes.

In the U.S. only if the minor was tried as an adult. Otherwise, even law enforcement can't find it. I have had several arrests as a minor; probably about ten total. Every …arrest I have had was between age 13 and 16, and I am now in my late 20s. My last arrest was when I was 16 and I was tried as an adult, and therefore was sentenced to serve time in the adult system, which does not constitute a juvenile charge. Of all of my charges between age 13-16, the only charge open to public inspection is the one that occurred at age 16, because I was tried as an adult, which led me to do time in an adult penitentiary as if I was over 18 when charged. As far as my other charges, they are closed to public inspection. However, and this is something that most people are not aware of, and are not told when juvenile proceedings are in progress. (I'm assuming this is in the U.S.) Although juvenile charges are said to be taken off the record either at age 18 or are said to not made public at all, this only applies to public record. So the average person in neither public, nor private companies, corporations, or not-for profit organizations when later in life looking for a job, can look up the charges or convictions (unless tried as an adult). However this does not apply to the federal government (and possibly state depending on the state). Growing up around several individuals with similar situations as myself, but with only juvenile records (without the adult charges from being waived into the adult system), I have seen several friends try to join the military or gain other government jobs later in life, and it all comes up. It does not matter what state either, the juvenile record will be sent to and retained by the federal government even if the state deletes it. I write this to make a point, because I have personally seen several parents of friends in the past told to proceed a certain way in the juvenile proceeding because the charges will be stricken from public record, and they were unaware of the difference between federal and public records, and the consequences later in life of a federal background check revealing the juvenile charges.
