Clerk’s Offices in Indiana now have a new, easy-to-use website for searching record retention schedules, which will hopefully save clerk staff a little bit of time and a little bit of frustration when they manage local records. Because court recordkeeping is a primary responsibility of each county clerk’s office in Indiana, the Indiana Supreme Court-through its Division of State Court Administration and Judicial Technology and Automation Committee staff-has created a retention schedules website that makes finding retention information much easier than the old method of flipping through pages in a printed book or document.
To view the retention schedules website, go to mycourts.IN.gov/ar7.
By default, all of the retention schedules are displayed in a sortable table, with 25 records per page across 14 pages. Users can filter the list by jurisdiction and case type using the menus at the top of the table under the “Browse” tab; or they can click the “Search” tab to view a text field where they can enter search terms. Retention schedules will be kept current if and when amendments are made to Administrative Rule 7.
