Georgia Public Records

The Georgia State Records mission is to provide every person the right to detect, obtain, preview and examine public records, thus providing Georgia residents with access in accordance with the Georgia Open Records Act, which cites that all government records are presumed to be available to the public for investigation: Attorney General of Georgia.

The main goal of this website is to enable members of the general public the right to access Georgia state public records easily, efficiently and concisely, without the requester having to specify a “need to know”. The law states all public records shall be open for personal inspection and copying, except when the information is covered by a court order of this state or by law.

Georgia State Records maintain information about the following subjects: Criminal Records, Court Records, Vital Records and State Background Checks. The information access provided by this website contains over 95 million transparent public records.

The search functionality granted in this portal enables the information requested to be presented immediately and accurately. Georgia State Records are gathered from as far back as the year 1805 and include information from 159 counties, thereby ensuring Georgia abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a “fair and just” society for all.
