North Dakota Public Records

Below are alphabetically sorted resources for the most common and useful records found statewide.  Click on a menu item at the left to search other North Dakota records found on other pages of our site.

  • Court System - In 1995 the county courts were merged with the district courts for all of North Dakota. As such the district courts maintain all county court information.  There are 53 district courts and 76 municipal courts. The ND State Court service will allow a search of district court cases and a limited number of municipal courts, but not all districts contribute records.  North Dakota Court Records
  • Criminal Records - Felony, misdemeanor, DUI, and juvenile cases are handled at the district court level. Some DUI/DWI cases are handled at the municipal court level.  If you would like a full statewide criminal history search of records filed since 1930, you may contact the Attorney General, but you need to have consent from the person being searched.  An alternative is to use the State Court service that will allow a search of limited district court cases and a limited number of municipal courts.  For more information and links to available databases online, visit our North Dakota Criminal Records page.
  • Vital Records – Available from: North Dakota Division of Vital Records, State Capitol, 600 East Boulevard Avenue, Department 301, Bismarck, ND 58505, (701) 328-3260, (701) 328-1850 fax.  Visit our Vital Records page to access the ND Department of Health Public Death Index, the Social Security Death Index for North Dakota, obituaries, and county deaths; two small local marriage databases; the ND State Court database for divorce cases. We have not yet found a free online birth record database for the state.  If you find one, please let us know and we will add it. Our vital records page also has information on ordering birth certificates.
