Fulton County Court Records

A Fulton County Court record is an official document regarding legal proceedings handled in a County Court. Court records provide an official account of all court proceedings and may be used as a basis for possible appeals. They include papers, maps, books, tapes, documents, photographs, computer-generated or based information, data fields, data, or similar material curated, received, or maintained by an agency (Georgia Open Records Act). They can comprise various legal information and documents for civil and criminal cases handled within the jurisdiction of Fulton County, Georgia.

The Clerk of the Court is the official agency responsible for holding court records of court cases heard by county courts. The Clerk's office maintains these records for precedent and future reference, transparency, statistical data and research, administrative operations, and case management, and to provide public access to interested members of the public.

Are Court Records Public in Fulton County?

Yes. The Georgia Open Public Records Act specifies that all court records created, received, or filed within the State be made available and accessible to members of the public upon request. Therefore, interested persons can access these records from the agencies responsible for maintaining and collecting them.

  • Specific misdemeanor convictions (like those below the age of 21)
  • Juvenile convictions
  • Completed first-time offender court cases sealed and retroactive.
  • Arrest records for charges that led to acquittal or were dismissed.
  • Certain non-violent felony convictions (depending on the unique offense and the defendant's criminal history).

Eligible persons may request to have their case information restricted from the public by filling out the record restriction form and submitting it to the District Attorney.
