Access to cases

There are specific statutes that govern which court records are "open" to the public and which court records are "confidential".  Court records such as juvenile delinquencies are considered confidential and therefore are closed to the public.   

You may use the State of Wisconsin Court Access website to search for information concerning cases that are open records and/or open to the public.  You may choose to search the entire state of Wisconsin by entering at least the first three characters of a party's last name and their first name; click SEARCH.  Alternatively, you may enter the name of the County by selecting the county from the Drop Down list and entering the specific case number.
