Legal Records Request Letter basics

A Legal Records Request Letter can be a simple way to obtain copies of your important legal documents. If you need a marriage certificate, adoption papers, or anything legal - a Legal Records Request Letter can be a good first step to getting you the document you need.

Use the Legal Records Request Letter document if:

  • You need a copy of a legal record from a courthouse.
  • You've lost one of your legal documents.
  • You need to provide a legal record to a company or government agency.

If your filing system hasn't lived up to expectations a Legal Records Request Letter can help you quickly get a copy of any of your legal records. There are a lot of times you might need legal records - changing your name on your passport or getting remarried, and if you don't have your own copies you'll need to get them from somewhere. Maybe your files were destroyed in an accident, maybe you don't want to give up your own copy, or perhaps you simply lost a document. Fortunately, the courthouses and records offices can help you out; and having your request in writing can help move things along smoothly, especially if you need the document in a hurry. Your Legal Records Request Letter can help get you what you need when you need it.
