Hendricks County, Indiana Civil Court Records

Complete Books | Order Books

The Hendricks County Clerk's Microfilm Department can search for Hendricks County civil cases. They are located on the second floor of the Hendricks County courthouse and can be reached by phone at (317) 745-9800.


A complete record book contains an extensive summary of a civil case from its beginning to its end. Making a complete record of a civil case was not a requirement - it required the lawyer to pay an additional fee to the clerk - so most civil cases are not included in these books. The option of having a complete record made of a civil case was abolished by 1920.
