Have you ever wondered if your new boyfriend or girlfriend has a record? Or maybe you want to know if your car mechanic or doctor have been sued?
If so, Collier County Clerk of Courts Dwight Brock is offering a seminar Feb. 21 to teach citizens how to investigate people and businesses by using his office's website, collierclerk.com.
Brock will show how to find court records, official records such as deeds or mortgages, homeowner association records and other documents. How to use other online resources, including how to pay a traffic ticket, file a tenant eviction or small claims case, also will be discussed.
In addition to search capabilities, the website lists requirements for passport applications, how to apply for a marriage license and how to check jury duty numbers.
Citizens will be allowed to ask questions at the seminar, which will be from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the South Regional Library on Lely Cultural Boulevard. Registration is by phone, (239) 252-7542, or online at http://bit.ly/A0r5XW
In March, Brock will teach a seminar on tenant evictions, including the top reasons why landlords file eviction cases and your rights as landlords or tenants.
The website lists resources available to landlords and tenants, forms required in such cases, and filing fees. Brock will answer questions, but can't provide legal advice.
That seminar will be 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 21 at the Headquarters Library on Orange Blossom Drive. Registration is by phone (239) 593-0177, or online at: http://bit.ly/A0r5XW
