Certification of Court Records


A certification request form is available for customers at our front counter. Please allow at least 24-48 hours for certifications of court files not held on the premises. You may call the Juvenile Justice Division at (312) 433-4881 to inquire if the file you are requesting will need to be ordered. 

Proper identification, such as a driver's license, state identification, or social security card must be presented before any certification services are rendered. 

Due to the confidential nature of Juvenile Justice Division matters, the only parties authorized to access case files are the following persons: the minor who is the subject of record; the minor's parent(s);  the minor's legal guardian(s); the minor's legal counsel; and interested parties that are approved by the court.
