Requesting Records from the Clerk's Office
Documents available include criminal records, marriage licenses, divorce case records, civil case records, probate and guardianship case records, and certain naturalization records from February 1881 to the present day. The Bisbee office has most records available onsite in either electronic, paper, or microfilm formats, but the selection at the Sierra Vista office is limited. You may apply at the Courthouse in person by filling out a Request for Court Records Form. You will be notified if your request requires additional time.
