Vermont Courts Online provides access to calendar information for all of Vermont's District and Family Courts and 12 of 14 Superior Courts; as well as detailed case information for 12 of 14 Vermont Superior Courts (civil and small claims cases). Records not open to public inspection by statute or court rule are not contained on this website.
Detailed case information about Family Court cases is currently NOT accessible through VTCourtsOnLine.
Calendar information is available for all cases, and includes information about the parties, attorneys, the nature of the disputes, and the hearing information when and if that information is not confidential. It is not necessary to sign up for an account to view the calendar information. Visit the Public Calendar.
Detailed case information includes case summaries and real-time docket chronologies and is currently available for Civil and Small Claims cases in 12 of the 14 Superior Courts. The Superior Courts in Chittenden and Franklin Counties do not use this system. You must sign up for an account to use these features.
