Court Case Look-Up

MiCOURT Case Search Now Available for 44th District Court

The Case Search feature allows for broad public access to electronic 44th District Court records. 


The Case Search application will not display whether or not a case is in warrant status, i.e. an arrest warrant has been issued.  If you think your case may be in warrant status you should call the court at 248-246-3600, Mon - Fri, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Persons in warrant status may "walk-in" Mon - Fri 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  The warrant will be recalled and you will go to the courtroom to speak with the judge.  You may be required to post a cash bond so you should come prepared.  


The Case Search application will not display information on non-public cases.  There are categories of cases where information about the defendant and case is not available to the public.  You cannot ask for information about a non-public case over the telephone or through the mail.  Court personnel cannot acknowledge that a non-public case exists except to authorized persons who appear in person at the courthouse.  



ips for Searching

Search by party name to locate the court docket sheet for a specific party name. The party name can be the name of an individual or organization.

Click the 'submit' button to begin the search.




  • Party names in certain case types, such as adoption and termination of parental rights, are suppressed to protect the privacy interests of the minor children. Thus, searching for case information by party name may not produce any results for those case types.
  • For an individual, the form must be Last Name First Name. There should be no comma and only one space separating the Last Name from the First Name. (For example: Smith Tracy) If a middle initial appears in the Court's database, it must be included in the search field to generate full and accurate results.
  • For an organization, enter the name of the organization. (For example: ABC Inc.)
  • Searching may be done based on partial name, by using a wildcard (an asterisk) (For example: Smi* will match Smith, Smithers, Smiley...). Note that searches using wildcards may take longer to return results, but they require less accuracy in the search terms.


By Docket Number

Use the By Docket Number search to locate the court docket sheet for a specific docket number.  The docket number is also known as the case number. 

Enter the docket or case number  and click the submit button to begin the search.


Once the search is complete, the docket sheet for that docket number will be displayed.
