Virginia Public Records

The Virginia State Records website has a mission to provide every person with the tools to seek out and obtain Virginia public records. This right is in accordance with the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, which specifies that all government information and records are presumed public. 

The main purpose of the Virginia State Records website is to give the general public easy and effective access to these records. These records can be obtained without submitting personal information, unless a court order or law requires a record to be classified as confidential. 

Virginia State Records contains criminal records, court records, vital records, and over 75 million transparent public records.

The commitment of the United States of America is to remain a fair and just society for all. The state of Virginia began collecting public records in 1810, and these records cover the states 95 counties. Over the last 30 years, digitization of public records has become the standard, meaning both governmental and third party websites are able to offer records online with increased reliability.
