Delaware Public Records

This is the Delaware State Records website. Its mission is to provide Delawareans with right to examine and obtain public records. This is in accordance with the Delaware Freedoms of Information Act, which ensures government information and records are available to the public: 

General Regulations for State Agencies.

The goal of this website is to ensure all members of the general public the right to access Delaware state public records. This can be done without requiring a reason for accessing such information, or providing personal information, unless the requested information is confidential by law, either constitutional, statutory or by court decision.

The following information is available through the Delaware State Records website: Criminal Records, Court Records, Vital Records and State Background Checks; including over 8.5 million transparent public records.

The search function in this portal enables requested information to be presented accurately and immediately. Delaware public records are gathered from as far back as the year 1905 and include information from 3 counties, thereby ensuring Connecticut abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a “fair and just” society for all.
