Note: Ronald Swafford is the Clerk of Court for Juvenile. Mr.
Swafford would like the following information to be included on our website to
help alleviate unnecessary confusion:
(1) When a child turns
18 years of age, their juvenile record is closed and sent to storage. To
view your file(s), contact the Court's Records Department by telephone (or in
person) and ask them to check for your name on their Index of stored files in
the warehouse. If your name is on their list, they will put in a request
to have the records pulled from storage and brought to the Court. You will
be given a date your records can be expected to arrive and can be viewed.
(2) The Juvenile Court requires you to come to the Court in person and present a
picture ID before they will let you look at the files. There is a private
room in their office that you may take your file to read through it. You
may request a copy to take with you. The Court will not send out copies in
the mail nor will they answer questions pertaining to the contents of the file
over the telephone.
(3) Mr. Swafford suggests the following if you do not live in the Chattanooga
area: "The Court can accept a Court Order from a court in your county
OR a certified letter from a court, signed by a Judge, requesting your records
be mailed to you". Be sure to contact the Records Department in
Chattanooga first to see if they have your file in storage.
Swafford's office suggests that all inquiries contain your telephone number so
they can call you if they need to ask additional questions.
(5) Adoptions: "If you were adopted, the Juvenile Court in
Chattanooga, Tennessee would not have your adoption records. You will need
to direct your inquiries to the Department of Human Services in Nashville,
Tennessee. Their telephone number is 423-634-6200.
