Certificate of Disposition is a certified record of your criminal case if any. This is a document issued by a court that specifies the current status of any case present or whether or not the case is complete and contains final disposition.

There are a number of reasons why one may need a Certificate of Disposition. For instance, if you are a defendant or have been one previously in a felony or misdemeanor case, and the case is complete, this certificate is a proof that your case is over or has a final disposition. Sometimes, there are more than one case involved, and in order to work on a new case, all previous cases should be complete and recorded. This is where the Certificate of Disposition comes into picture, which states that the previous case(s) are closed. Certificate of Disposition is also needed when you are preparing for a life changing situation, such as applying for a job, applying for a license/id, applying for the US citizenship, renting a place, as well as proceeding with a new court case.

There are many government offices that will provide the Certificate of Disposition upon request. These offices work with clients from all over the nation to deliver the required Certificate of Disposition for a reasonable fee. The best way to get this certificate is to approach one of these offices, fill out a form with information such as full name, date of birth, address, place where the case was booked, date of arrest, docket number and so on. Once obtained, the original documents will be returned and copy retained for your record. Note that some Certificate of Disposition may contain an expiration date and need to be renewed periodically.
