Dena Standley | October 19, 2022

Searching for your court case online is like ^^

Summary: You can search for appellate court cases online in Wyoming with the Wyoming Public Docket Tool, but for all other cases, you must visit the courthouse or call the court clerk to check the status of your case. Below is SoloSuit's guide to Wyoming's civil court structure, how case numbers work there, and how to check the status of your case.

It can be frustrating if a lawsuit is filed against you and you do not have all the details to prepare your defense. Residents of Wyoming do not have to wonder about their case details because the Wyoming Public Records Act gives the general public access to court records.

Currently, Wyoming's Judicial Branch does not offer an online statewide court case search tool However, there are several other methods you can use to check the status of your court case or get access to court records. These records include the lawsuit filed against you and the documents you will send in response to the suit.

Court records and dockets (records of court proceedings) are available in all courthouses during regular business hours. You can inspect or copy any court record after complying with the specific courthouse's requirements. If you are involved in a lawsuit, it's very important to know how to check your case status so you can be more prepared to respond to any new actions.

Finding your case isn't always easy, so in this article we'll show you what you need to know about searching for your court case in Wyoming.

We'll start off by reviewing Wyoming's civil court structure.

Understand how the courts are structured in Wyoming

In order to find your case information online or in person, it's important to understand how the civil courts are structured in Wyoming. When you know what courts have jurisdiction over certain types of cases, it will be easier for you to narrow down the court to which your case is assigned. In Wyoming, there are three levels of courts that deal with civil cases:

  1. Supreme Court
  2. District Court
  3. Circuit Court

The Supreme Court of Wyoming hears appeals from decisions of the District Court, and it also hears petitions for extraordinary relief from lower court decisions. It is the only appellate court in the state of Wyoming. This means that, when someone disagrees with the outcome of a District Court case, the case is reassigned to the Supreme Court.

Wyoming's District Courts are trial courts that handle big-dollar cases involving $50,000 or more. The District Courts also hear cases appealed from the Circuit Court. District Court is held in the county seat of each county.

Finally, the Circuit Courts have jurisdiction over civil cases involving less than $50,000 and small claims cases up to $6,000. There are Circuit Courts in all 23 counties throughout Wyoming.

The graphic below illustrates Wyoming's civil court structure:

Debt collection lawsuits usually start in the Circuit Court. Wyoming lacks an appellate court that typically ranks between the Supreme Court and the District Court. This variable means that if you need to appeal your case, it will be heard by a District Court or the Supreme Court in extreme situations. The Supreme Court acts as the last resort for most cases in Wyoming.

How do court case numbers work in Wyoming?

Wyoming courts receive hundreds of cases each year. To keep the records organized and for easier access, each case is given a number that uniquely identifies each action filed in a specific court. The case number is derived from the following details:

  • The case type
  • The year the lawsuit was filed

The chronological number of the case filing

For example, if you are being sued in the Circuit Court of Natrona County, Wyoming. Your case number is CV-2022-0500. This means that your case is the 500th civil case filed in 2022.

Search for Wyoming appellate court records

Right now, there is no way to search court records online in Wyoming unless it is an appellate case.

Find your appellate case online with Wyoming court's Public Docket Tool. You just need to enter some or all of the following information:

  • Case number
  • Case title (for example, Smith v. Midland Funding, LLC)
  • Case type (civil, criminal, etc.)
  • Docketing dates (date the case was filed)

Once you enter any of the above information, the tool will return results matching the case information entered.

Find your court records and check your case status in Wyoming

Access your court records by making a quick trip to a courthouses near you or by calling the court clerk. Wyoming has many courthouses that can make finding your court records a daunting task. Knowing the specific court in which your case is filed will narrow down the search and simplify the process.

Use this Wyoming court directory to find the address of a courthouse near you, or the specific courthouse where your case resides. The menu at the top of the site lists the different types of court. Hover over the type of court for your case, then click on the locations option from the dropdown menu.

At the courthouse, there is a public access terminal where you can search for all types of cases throughout the state of Wyoming. You can also ask the court clerk to make copies of court records on your behalf. Copies will come at a cost, which varies by courthouse.

In order to find your case at the courthouse, provide the following information:

  • Case number
  • Names of the parties listed on the case

This information should be sufficient to help a court clerk find your case. If you are struggling to find your case on the public access terminal at the courthouse, you can always ask the clerk to assist you.
