  • Court System  The Alabama court system has four levels. At the first are the limited jurisdiction courts: Probate Courts, which handle wills & estates; Municipal Courts, which handle ordinance violations; and District Courts, which handle misdemeanors, small claims, and civil cases under $3,000. They share concurrent jurisdiction with the Circuit Courts on juvenile & civil cases between $3,000 and $10,000. At the second level are the general jurisdiction Circuit Courts, which try civil cases over $10,000, domestic relations cases, & felony criminal cases. At the third level are the Court of Civil Appeals and Court of Criminal Appeals, which review opinions from the lower courts. The highest state court is the Supreme Court of Alabama, which reviews all lower court decisions.  Alabama does provide an online resource for trial court records in all counties, but unlike many other states that provide this as a free service, Alabama charges a registration and monthly service fee.  Go to our Court Records page for more information and to access the available free court searches.
  • Criminal Records  Jefferson, Madison, Marshall, and Tuscaloosa Counties have separate criminal divisions within each Circuit and District Court. Most felony cases are tried at the Circuit Courts. Misdemeanors committed with felonies are tried with the felonies in Circuit Court. Otherwise, misdemeanors are tried at the District or Municipal Court. DWI/DUI cases are handled in the District and Municipal Courts.  Alabama has a wide range of criminal record resources online.  You may access criminal court records in all counties through the State Judicial System, criminal histories, inmates, and parole violators, just to name a few.  For a list of available resources, use the menu or go here.
