As reported in the BRB's Public Record Update back in January of this year, Maine now has central service center in Lewiston for all record search requests. Walk in and mail in requests at individual county court houses are no longer being honored. There is also a new $20 fee per name, per court, which includes both criminal and civil dockets if requested. But here is the catch, requesting both dockets doubles turnaround time to as much as two weeks currently. Under the new rules, Private Investigators are allowed to conduct "walk in " style searches for the same cost. However, they are limited to 4 names per visit daily and copies of licenses must be provided to the court.
