Open Records

 

Pursuant to Oklahoma Statutes Title 51, subsections 24A 1-29, the public has the right of access to, and review of, government records so they may efficiently and intelligently exercise their inherent political power. These records are open to the public for inspection and copying, with certain applicable fees. Not all records are open; records that are not open are generally personnel and investigatory files with sensitive, private information.

Marriage Licenses, Divorce Decrees or other Court Records are handled by the Court Clerk's Office. Click here for more information on how to order those documents, or call 580-355-4017. You will NOT receive these documents if you fill out the Open Records Request Form.

For a complete copy of the Oklahoma Open Records Act, contact the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office at 405-521-3921.
