Obtaining Documents

The Clerk’s Office is proud to offer several ways to access our public records.

PACER Service. Almost all documents are filed electronically using the Case Management/Electronic Case Files System (CM/ECF). The Public Access to Court Electronic Records Service (PACER) provides online access to these documents at a minimal charge. You can open an account at Most docket sheets from 1992 and later and documents filed from March 1, 2005 and later are available in PACER.

Visit the Greensboro Clerk’ Office. Documents in CM/ECF can be viewed at no cost and printed for 10 cents per page. Paper public documents in the Clerk’s office can be viewed for free and copied for 50 cents per page.

Call the Clerk’s Office at 336-332-6000. Our staff will be glad to help you decide the best method for obtaining document access.

Send a Letter Requesting Copies. The letter should specifically identify each document being requested and include the exact amount of the total copying fee (50 cents per page).

Sealed Documents. Sealed documents are not available to the public. The Journalist’s Guide to Accessing Court Documents gives a good overview of how to access records and discusses sealed documents in more detail.
