Sonoma County Courts are judicial bodies that resolves legal disputes at the federal, California State, or local Sonoma County level. Courts typically specialize in a particular area of law, such as criminal, civil, family, and traffic courts. Courts also create records about their cases, which provide information about the defendant and plaintiffs in a trial, the charges brought against an individual, the outcome of a trial, and any sentences, court decrees, or probation orders. Any type of judicial action creates a paper trail, and many courts provide online access to their case records. This includes records on criminal misdemeanors and felonies, divorces, lawsuits against businesses, civil rights violations, complaints about sexual harassment or discrimination, and more. Court databases often allow the public to search cases by the names of the people involved.

Sonoma County Juvenile Justice Centers handle youth who have broken the law in a separate system from adult offenders. For juvenile offenders, who are seventeen or younger, Sonoma County case records may show all arrests, referrals to agencies of intake centers, bookings at Sonoma County detention centers, and records from the adjudication process. These Sonoma County case files may also include psychological assessments, probation, court-ordered restitution, or placements in a juvenile correction facility. These records may be sealed because of their personal nature, but even partial or redacted records may provide important information on a person's juvenile record. Juvenile Justice Centers may provide access to their case records on their websites.
