Greenville County Court Records Online

There are third-party websites for almost all kinds of Greenville County public records. These websites, owned by independent companies, are usually run alongside official government-operated websites. While they may tout free access on their pages, they typically only display basic record information for free. To access a full report or record, users usually have to pay a fee.

Third-party online record databases like courtrecords.us are sometimes easy to use as they have various additional functionalities (such as relevant search filters) and are usually not limited to a specific jurisdiction (usually statewide or countrywide). Users may also find other types of records related to a searched name, whereas official resources only limit results to a specific type of record or jurisdiction.

On the downside, however, third-party search tools are usually more expensive than government sites. Moreover, records found on these sites may not be complete or up-to-date. As such, it is best to verify records retrieved from third-party sources with official records.
