Court Record Search

How do I do a court record search?

Search in Person


You may ask the County Clerk's Office to do a search for Superior Court cases in person during business hours (8:30 a.m. - 12 Noon and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m., Monday - Friday).

Search by Telephone


Limited search information is available by telephoning the County Clerk's Office at 509-477-2211 during office hours. no information can be provided over the telephone for confidential or sealed cases. In older cases, if the case is on microfilm, we will take your search information and a daytime telephone number where we can contact you after the search.

Search by Mail


You may mail a search request to:
Spokane County Clerk's Office
County Courthouse, Room 300
1116 W Broadway Avenue
Spokane WA 99021-0090

Include in your letter as much information as you have about the case, i.e., party names, date of filing, etc., and what (if any) documents you would like a copy of. If you are requesting information about a confidential or sealed case, you will need to provide proper identification depending on access requirements. Some confidential and sealed cases may not be accessible at all without first obtaining a court order.

Fees


There is a $30 fee for searching records plus the copy charge, if copies are requested. Certified copies (with seal) cost $5 for the first page of the document and $1 for each additional page. Non-certified copies cost $0.50 per page. These fees are in accordance with RCW 36.18.016.
