HI FRAN WOULD YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET ANOTHERS PERSONS CRIMINAL RECORD. THIS WOULD BE NEW YORK STATE?
Hello,The problem is, you're not entitled to anyone's official Criminal Record other than your own. What you as another person can get, is limited. So really, it depends on what you need it for. The state is not going to let you have a fishing expedition just to see whether someone you're curious about for whatever reason has ever been in trouble. If, however, you need to know about someone's criminal history for the purpose of civil litigation, then the state will allow you to get a record of a particular person's criminal convictions. NYS explains how to do that here.
FRAN THANK YOU.
I BRIEFLY LOOKED AT THE SITE YOU LISTED. FOR MY BETTER UNDERSTANDING. I AM SORRY THIS SOUNDS REAL BAD. I AM REPRESENTING MYSELF FOR CUSTODY/ VISITATION OF 2 CHILDREN 10 AND 7 YRS OLD. MOM HAS HAD DIFFERENT LIVE INS FREIENDS THE WORD IS ONE BEFORE AND THE PRESENT ARE PROBABLE CRIMINAL OFFENDERS. THEN MOM SENDS THE CHILDREN TO ANOTHER EX BOYFRIEND SHE HAS 3 OLDER CHILDREN WITH YOUNGEST OF THEM BEING 18,HE IS BAD. FOR COURT PURPOSES GOING TO TRIAL I NEED FACTS AS YOU KNOW NOT HEARSAY THUS THEIR CRIMINAL RECORDS. THE PARTICIPANTS HAVE MINE AS IT HAS BEEN STATED IN WRITTING THAT SOME 35 TO 40 YRS AGO I HAD DWI, AND OBSTRUCTING GOVERNMENTAL WHATEVER.
SO I CAN NOT JUST SUBPEONA CRIMINAL RECORDS LIKE SAY LIKE YOU SUBPEONA RECORDS AND DOCUMENTS. THE ONLY WAY FOR COURT IS THAT WEBSITE YOU LISTED?
Hi,Thanks for clarifying. I figured that what you wanted was for purposes of a civil matter. That's why I steered you to the state website. That would give you an official document attesting to the person's convictions. Yes, you can try to subpoena the criminal histories. NYS tells you what you would have to do here. You'd need the judge to sign off on this.
