How to Find Massachusetts Court Records Online

probate-book_6405

Most civil court records in Massachusetts are available online at masscourts.org.

The online index contains records from every county/region for the following courts:

  1. Superior Court
  2. District Court
  3. Housing Court
  4. Land Court
  5. Probate & Family Court

How far back the records go varies by county and court.

Most of the indexing goes back at least 20 years and some records even go back into the 1980’s.

What’s available online is only the clerk’s record of the documents filed in the case and any judgments or orders issued by the court.

If you want further details for a particular document in the case then you need to go to the clerk’s office and request to see the file.
