If you would like to request a copy of Puyallup or Milton Court documents, please use either the on-line public record request option (look on the city's homepage, under the blue "I want to..." tab), or print and mail a copy of the public record request form.
When requesting a copy of a court record, please be specific as to the document/s you are requesting. It is not up to court staff to determine what should be sent. Additionally, there are copy fees as follows: $10.00 CD of hearing copied; $5.00 for certified copies; $1.00 for the first page of copied materials and .15 cents for each additional page.
Puyallup and Milton Municipal Courts are courts of limited jurisdiction, which means, we are not a court of permanent record. Documents are stored according to the Washington Secretary of State's Retention Schedule. Limited documents are kept for three (3) years after closure of a case. After the three year period expires, hard-copy documents are no longer maintained. The JIS docket is the only record kept in perpetuity.
