Oklahoma Public Records

The state of Oklahoma has long made provisions for the sharing of the state records with the general public. Citizens can easily obtain the records preserved by the state.

There are provisions that guide the access and copying of Oklahoma Public Records. The Oklahoma’s Open Records Act, found in Oklahoma Statutes’ Chapter 24 of Title 51, states that “any person”, not considering citizenship status, has the right to access and obtain public records in Oklahoma. Requests for the records can be done for any purpose. However, if you are requesting records for commercial purposes, you may be required to pay an additional fee.

Oklahoma Criminal Records

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) administers background checks in the state of Oklahoma. Anyone can request a Criminal History Record check on anyone, and the consent of the individual being checked is not required. Licensing agencies and employers can also use an online search portal to conduct instant background checks.

Inmate and jail records are also available. To obtain any information on any Oklahoma correctional facility, services for victims, or inmates in the system, visit the website of Oklahoma Department of Corrections. You can request for arrest records or jail and inmate records online through this website. If you want to find an offender in any prison in the state of Oklahoma, you will find a search page on the Oklahoma Department of Corrections site that will ask you to key in either First and Last Name or ODOC#. The results will return a description, current location, list of offenses, earliest possible release date, and an image if available.

Oklahoma Court Records

The state’s administrator of the courts official website contains information about courts in Oklahoma. The website also contains information on how to get court records. The online search lets you search the categories for all district courts in Oklahoma and the 3 appellate courts. You will still have to request copies of the actual case files from the clerk of the court within the courthouse in which the case was handled.

Oklahoma Vital Records

Oklahoma Vital Records, such as death and birth certificates are maintained by the Vital Statistics Office and Oklahoma Center for Health Statistics.

  • Birth records: Some counties began keeping birth records as early as 1891, but most counties began keeping these records after statehood in 1907. You can obtain the early records of birth from county courthouses. The statewide registration of births in Oklahoma began 1908 but full compliance was reached in 1930. Birth records are kept at the Oklahoma Vital Records Service.
  • Death records: Some areas began keeping death records in Oklahoma as early as 1891. Birth records from this year were gathered from the county churches and courthouse where the event took place. The statewide registration of deaths in Oklahoma began in 1928 but complete compliance was achieved by around 1930. The Oklahoma Vital Records Service currently keeps death records in the state.
  • Marriage records: Each county in Oklahoma kept marriage records either from when the time the county was created or from 1890. Only few marriages in the territorial error were recorded in the county courthouses in Texas, Kansas, and Arkansas.
  • Divorce records: Divorce records are available from 1907. Divorces were granted by the circuit court or district courts after 1907. The Oklahoma Family History Library currently keeps divorce records of the state.

Whether or not you are a citizen of Oklahoma, you can get access to Oklahoma public records. All you need to do is to make your request appropriately.

Oklahoma State Court System

Understanding how the system of Oklahoma state court works is very important as it helps you find court records easily.

Oklahoma Courts Overview

To make your work easier, start searching for court records in Oklahoma by simply going to courts by county.

The trial court system of Oklahoma State consists of Court of Tax Review, Workers Compensation Court of Existing Claims, Municipal Courts, and District Courts.

District Courts

Oklahoma District Courts have general jurisdiction to handle all types of cases, but generally handle only the cases that other courts have no jurisdiction over.

District Courts have Small Claims departments for handling most general civil cases with up to $10,000 in dispute, exclusive of costs and attorney fees. Types of cases include interpleader, the return of money or personal property, and suits that seek money damages based on a tort or contract.

A District Court may have a specialized program or division for certain types of cases, including Mental Health Court, Drug Court, and Business Court. Business Courts may exist in counties with huge populations to hear complex commercial cases. A District Court may have a Mental Health Court, Drug Court, and Juvenile Drug Court program for handling certain non-violent cases in which the offender has some treatable addiction or condition.

Municipal Courts

Oklahoma Municipal Courts have limited jurisdiction over most criminal as well as traffic cases involving violations of municipal ordinances. Besides, some Municipal Courts can also hear misdemeanor criminal cases.

There are some Municipal Courts with a Mental Health Court division for handling certain non-violent criminal cases in which the offender has some treatable addiction or condition.

Municipal Courts are divided into two categories. The first type is known as Municipal Courts “of records” that handle cases that include some misdemeanor criminal cases and most violations of traffic, parking, and environmental ordinances. The second type is known as Municipal Courts “not of record” that handle violations of municipal ordinances.

Workers’ Compensation Court of Existing Claims

The Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Court of Existing Claims has exclusive jurisdiction to handle claims filed at the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Act particularly for work related injuries that occurred before February 1, 2014. These claims include any right contained in the Act, claims for compensation, and the liability of insurers and employers. Workers’ Compensation Commission is a state administrative agency that handles any claims for work-related injuries that occurred after or on February 1, 2014.

Court of Tax Review

This a specialized pane of the District Court with exclusive and limited jurisdiction over some cases that are connected to ad valorem taxation, such as appeals of the decisions made by state tax agencies.

Tribal Courts

There is an independent Tribal Court system in Oklahoma and it shares with District Courts some criminal and civil jurisdiction.
