Online Case Look Up

You can look up your family court case online by visiting Clark County Courts Records Inquiry.

From that page, click on “Family Records.” You will then be able to search public family records by case number or by a party’s name. Enter the full case number, or the party name as it appears on court documents. If you are unsure of how to spell a party’s name, check the box that says “soundex” and the system will expand the search to names that sound like the one you are searching for.

FYI!

Some family court cases are “sealed” and not accessible to the public. If you have a sealed case, you will not be able to view any information about the case through the court’s case look up service. You will need to come to the courthouse with your photo ID and have a clerk look up the case for you. 

 

Obtaining Copies of Documents, Transcripts, and Videos

The Clerk of Court can provide you with copies of documents from your case, and can provide you with a video or transcript from a hearing. 

To obtain copies of documents, please visit the Clerk of Court Records page. From that page, you can download a "copy request" form indicating what documents you would like.  The form can be submitted in person at the Family Court or by mail to 601 N. Pecos Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89101.  There is a fee of $0.50/page.  If you have registered with the court’s online e-filing service, Wiznet, you may also be able to view documents filed in your case by logging into your Wiznet account and using the “Document Access Program.”

FYI!

Adoption records cannot be accessed without a court order.  If you need copies of documents from an adoption case, you can download the Petition to Unseal Adoption Packet (pdf) which includes all of the instructions and forms needed to get court approval to access the records.   

To obtain a video from a court hearing, please visit the Transcript Video Services page. From there, you can download a form to order a video from a hearing.  Costs depend on how many hearings you are requesting and whether you want the video on a CD, VHS, or a memory stick.  Requests can be made in person or by mail.

To obtain a written transcript from a court hearing, please visit the Transcript Video Services page. There you will find a form to get an estimate for the cost of the written transcript.  Prices vary depending on the length of the hearing.  Requests can be made in person, by mail, or by fax.
