In Arkansas, there are limited jurisdiction courts, general jurisdiction trial courts, and appellate courts. The appellate courts consist of the Court of Appeals and the Arkansas Supreme Court.

Limited jurisdiction courts include City Courts, which operate in small communities lacking District Courts. City Courts have original jurisdiction for the trial of city ordinance violations, and original jurisdiction concurrent with the Circuit Courts for the trial of misdemeanors. City Courts also handle civil cases less than $5,000.

District Courts, formerly known as municipal courts, oversee the same case types as City Courts, but with countywide jurisdiction. They include a small claims division.

Circuit Courts, the general jurisdiction trial courts, handle misdemeanor, felony, civil, probate, domestic relations, and juvenile cases. The State of Arkansas is divided into 23 judicial circuits, each with its own Circuit Court.

Arkansas does not offer a statewide searchable database for District or Circuit Court records. However, you can search for court records from available county databases listed below, along with federal District Court records, Supreme & Appeals Court dockets & opinions.
