Record of Court Proceedings

  •  All proceedings before the court are recorded—either by an official Court Reporter or by a digital audio recording.   
  • Transcripts of proceedings in the Circuit Court are available only through an official Court Reporter.    
  • The cost of transcripts depends on the type of record and the number of pages in the final typed transcript.    

Order a Transcript

     1.    You will need the case number and dates of the record you want.  If possible, find the judge's name and courtroom number . 

      2.   Order a CD of an audio recording, or a written transcript with the right form!

  • If the proceeding was recorded by a digital audio recording (no court reporter present) ORDER a CD.   The CD will be free if you also order a printed transcript.:  
  • If you are appealing from the Circuit Court to the Court of Special Appeals or Court of Appeals, you must ORDER A TRANSCRIPT FOR APPEAL.
  • If you need a transcript for any other reason, you must ORDER A TRANSCRIPT, NON-APPEAL.

     3.   PAY for your transcript.    A court reporter may provide an estimate in advance, but will not know the final cost until the transcript is completed.
