Court records are a matter of public record; most records from 3 decades ago are not digitalized so one would need to go to the clerk's office and likely either fill out a request, or access the records via microfiche or the mode of storage as used by that partcular court house.

If the records were sealed (this is sometimes the case when a minor is involved, but not typically done for family law paternity/custody/support issues) then one would need to petition the family law department for access to the record - basically for a certified copy of the order of paternity.
