Access To Vermont Court Records:
Administered by the Office of the Court Administrator, Vermont’s judicial system was divided in 1990 into civil, criminal, family, probate, and environmental. Further divisions operate in each of the counties, with the Supreme Court having appellate jurisdiction over all five divisions. Before 1990 the judicial system was divided by county, with county courts (renamed to superior courts) and district courts. The Vermont Public Records Division preserves historical records on microfilm; recent cases remain at the county court offices.
