To find public records from the Wisconsin Circuit Court, go to the Wisconsin Court System Circuit Court Access website. Read the terms of service at the top of the page, and tick the button to agree with the terms of service. The site then redirects to a search page.
On the search page, enter the full name of a person to find records regarding that person. If the personﾒs full name is unknown, enter the first three letters of the last name followed by an asterisk, and then enter the first three letters of the first name. Include the person's birth date to return narrower results.
The website defaults to a state-wide records search. To limit the results to a specific location, select a county from the drop-down menu in the County tab. Click Search, and the website returns a list of court cases involving people whose names are an exact match or a close approximation of the name entered on the page.
To search court records by case number, enter the case number and the county where the case originated. To search for business records, enter at least the first three letters of the business name followed by an asterisk. Include as much information as possible to limit the number of court records the site returns. Use the Advanced Search option to include additional parameters if the system returns too few or too many results.
