Public records like Lubbock Public Records are some of the most requested for records from the government because these records contain information that the members of the community are interested in and these records are the best evidence that one could provide in order to prove that that which is written on these records are real. There are a myriad of information that is written on the faces of these records and examples of public records could be vital record which have something to do with the personal information of a person to records of the dealings and minutes of meetings that members of the government engage in as part of their mandate to serve the people.
It must be remembered that not all records that would be made by the government would be public records. There are some records that contain information that the law considers being too sensitive to be allowed to the public and these records are not public records. At the same time, there are some records that contain information that are classified to be available only to those select number of people even if the information contained within those records are also very important to the welfare of the people. An example of such relatively restricted records would be death records or divorce records which could only be requested by those people who are related to the event that had happened.
Public records, as the name implies, are available to the public at all times. It is theoretically possible for any person to make the request for copies of these records by following the procedure that the law had identified to be followed when making the request, though in practice, the ones who do make the request for copies of these records are typically those people who do have a legitimate interest in the records and the reason for this would be because these records do not actually come for free. Of course, the typical fee required for making the request for copies of these records are very minimal and would not really be an obstacle to making the request in question.
A request for copies of the records in question is usually done at the place where the records were made, unless the records that would be requested would have an official custodian that would be identified by the law, and in such a case, it would only be at the office of the official custodian of the records where copies of the records could be requested from. Each office would have their own procedure though it would mostly be to make the request in person or to make the request through the mail.
Lubbock County Clerk of Court Records could also be requested for online through the use of online databases, though one must note that these databases are not official sources. Nevertheless, these databases could provide the information that would be substantially similar as that which could be found from the official sources faster and more efficiently, and they are also easier to find and use as they are internet based.
