  • Court System - The Idaho court system has three levels. At the first are the District Court and Magistrate Division. The District Court handles felony cases, civil cases of higher amounts, and appeals from the Magistrate. The Magistrate handles misdemeanors, civil cases of lower amounts, juvenile, family law, probate, and small claims. At the second level is the Court of Appeals, founded in 1981 to handle some of the caseload from the Supreme Court. At the top is the Idaho Supreme Court, which reviews decisions from the lower courts and assigns certain appealed cases to the Court of Appeals.  Idaho Court Records
  • Criminal Records - Felony cases are heard in District Court. Misdemeanor and juvenile cases are heard in the Magistrate Division. Criminal court records are generally not made available to the public in Idaho, except through the State Police. As an alternative to checking for court records, we recommend a search of Department of Corrections records, which include misdemeanor and felony convictions. For those databases and more, go to our Idaho Criminal Records page.

State St., 1st Floor, PO Box 83720, Boise, ID 83720, (208) 334-5988 (recording), Fax: (208) 389-9096.  Visit our Vital Records page for Idaho births and christenings from 1856 to 1965; the Death Index for Idaho (Social Security), and various historical death, cemetery, and obituary databases; statewide historical marriage databases; information on ordering divorce certificates, and a link to Payette County recorded documents (including divorce decrees).
