The Alaska Administrative Office of Courts is the central agency for all court information, specifically the three trial-level courts: superior, district and magistrate. Alaska has no counties but does have four judicial districts where magistrates can preside over cases. The Superior Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction, with a district court in each of the four districts. The cases available include criminal records, civil records, small claims records, state traffic records, domestic relations, and child support.
