North Carolina Public Records

North Carolina government and citizens believe that the information contained in the public records belong to the people as it is their property. The information is easily accessible.

The North Carolina Public Records Law gives individuals the constitutional right to see and copy most of the state’s public records. The law states that the public, through a request, can access any record of a public government agency. Falling within the definition of a public agency include public offices, councils, bureaus, institutions, boards, commissions and departments that serve the state government.

The materials that are defined as public records include any map, document, photograph, paper, book, letter, electronic data or film received or made by a government agency in regards to public business. You can request any of these items, and the agency may not grant you access in case an exception is applicable. Among the exemptions include information about government lawsuit settlements, custody of criminal investigation records and so on.

North Carolina Criminal Records

The North Carolina Division of Adults Correction maintains and distributes all North Carolina Criminal Records. Only Criminal Justice staff may request to get information kept in the offender information online database which has been protected by a password. Such precautions exist to ensure that the information is accessed only by authorized personnel.

There is also a public name-based search database that may be used when searching for offenders by name, age, gender, race, age range, birth data, ethnic group, and offender number. The public online database is available on the website of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.

North Carolina arrest records and inmate and jail records may be found on the North Carolina Department of Public Safety official website by using name-based search database. You can conduct searches for jail and inmate records using the inmate’s name, birth date, ethnic group, gender, race, or offender number. The information you will get from a search can include the name of the offender, incarceration stats, sentence history, current location, gender, race, and ethic group. You can find further information about jail and inmate records in North Carolina within the North Carolina’s Victim Notification Service Profile.

North Carolina Court Records

Most South Carolina Court Records are available to public access. While the right to access and copy court documents is not actually absolute, contacting the court clerk before applying for documents can greatly help the search to be more successful.

For cases within the borders of the Eastern District of North Carolina, you can make online requests through the website of the Eastern District of North Carolina United States District Court.

North Carolina Vital Records

North Carolina Vital Records are maintained and distributed by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. These records include marriage, birth, divorce, and death certificates.

  • Birth records: Statewide registration of births in North Carolina began in 1913 but was fully complied with by around 1920. However, some cities had been keeping birth records earlier before this time. For example, Raleigh started recording for births at around 1890. Counties are required to record any death that occurs within their borders and send copies of such records to the state office but keep a duplicate copy.
  • Death records: Statewide registration of deaths in North Carolina began in 1913, but compliance in all counties was reached by around 1917. Original death records for most counties for 1913-1979 are kept at the North Carolina State Archives. You can request for a death certificate from the North Carolina State Archives and the county Register of Deeds.
  • Marriage records: Marriages from 1669 to 1742 were recorded in the county records and were performed by civil authorities of the clergy. Most of these records are not available apart from those from Perquimans FHL Films 370662 and Pasquotank FHL Film 19496 counties. You can request for any records of marriages from 1868 to 1962 from the register of deeds in every county. Statewide registration for marriages in North Carolina began in 1962. Microfilms of marriage records for most South Carolina counties in 1950s are available at the Family History Library.
  • Divorce records: The Family History Library keeps microfilms of divorce records for most counties especially the records of 1950s. All divorce records are maintained by North Carolina Vital Records.

When it comes to application and access to public records, North Carolina is one of the friendliest states. By following the right procedure, you should be able to access the information you seek without any difficulty.
