Welcome to the Records Management Web page. The Records Management Office is here to help you locate records for children that were, or still are, in DCS custody.

There are many different types of records, such as education, medical, adoption, juvenile justice, and others, all obtained by different methods. So, first, determine what type of record you want to find.

Important Note: If the records you are seeking are to be used for a court case of any type, we must have a subpoena from the court. Subpoenas may be submitted to:
