Records exist as a means of proving something that had happened. The contents of official records are generally accepted by anyone without requiring proof that the events recorded therein had actually happened, after all, this are the official records. To ensure the availability of these records to the public is one of the reasons why the collection of documents referred to as the Liberty County Public Records exists.
Records, as already mentioned, are conclusive proof that something had happened, for this reason, records are frequently attached to other official documents in other proceedings, such as during appellate proceedings where court records are the only means that the magistrates could actually ascertain what had happened during the trial phrase of the judicial process, but that is not their only use. Official records are of great use to the public as they may be used for background checks of a particular person, and at the same time, they could be used to prove a lot of other things such as ownership or a property, the existence of a marriage, and other things.
The importance of public official records is best demonstrated by the fact that these records are considered by the law itself to be always available to the public. Under the command of a law, the official custodian of public records, the clerk of courts, could not refuse a request from anyone, regardless of reason or circumstances, to see the records. The corresponding duty of the clerk, however, to secure the documents mean that the clerk is empowered to prescribe rules and regulations that must be followed in order for a person to see the archives.
A person who wishes to see the records of the clerk of courts has a number of ways in order to send a request, but the personal request option is thought to be the best way because the records would be made available to a person on the same day that the request was made. This is done through the person who wishes to look into the records personally appearing before the clerk of courts. Note that while the person could search the records himself, it is advised that, if there is a particular record in the mind of the searcher, he just leave the specifics to the clerk. Presumably, the clerk, who is more familiar with the filling system in use, would be able to locate the records faster.
Once the records had been located, the searcher may request for a copy of the same to be made. This usually requires only a verbal request and the payment of the required copying fee which is usually one dollar per page. Afterwards, the copy would be certified by the clerk for an additional fee of two dollars per document.
Another option would be to conduct a search for public records online. Currently, there is an undeterminable number of online databases that provide substantially the same information available within the archives of the clerk of courts. These websites are easier to use and often provide their contents free of charge. In addition, because of the nature of interconnectivity within the net, these databases are often connected to other databases that could also provide other types of information that the searcher may find to be of great use. This is all in addition to the fact that the search, which is nearly instantaneous, could be done within the comforts of the home of the searcher.
