INSTRUCTIONS FOR ORDERING AUDIO
Please make sure that the form is complete before submitting it to the court. To obtain a copy
of the audio from a hearing, visit your nearest court location or send in a completed
request form to the originating court location where the audio was recorded (find court
contact information at http://courts.alaska.gov/courtdir/index.htm). Once your audio request is
submitted, the court will send you an invoice for the recording. Fees for electronic recordings
can be found in
Administrative Rule
9(d). Following completion of your payment, the court will
send the audio recording to you based on your preferred method of delivery.
Your request must contain CD / tape / media numbers and log numbers in addition to
hearing dates and case numbers. This information is available in the log notes located
within the specific case file. You may visit the court location of the originating case file and view
the log notes to obtain the media numbers and log numbers, or you can submit a written
request to the originating court for the log notes.
Confidential Records. Only parties to a case are allowed to receive copies of confidential
case records. If you are requesting confidential records, you must present photo ID to the
court clerk when making your request. In addition to cases that have been made confidential
by a judge, the following case types are confidential: Adoption, Child in Need of Aid (CINA),
Conservatorship, Delinquency, Guardianship, Minor Settlement, Sanity (Hospitalization), and
Grand Jury.
If the request is for a hearing before 2000, the customer MUST provide a copy of the
log notes; however, customers may submit log notes with ANY audio request.
