A set up fee of $25.00 is required to establish an XChange account. The subscription fee is $30.00 per month for up to 200 searches. A search is defined as each time, the user searches for a case by name, case number or other criteria. After 200 searches in a month, the cost of a search is $.10/search until the next billing cycle starts on the first of the next month. Documents are available in some cases. The cost of accessing a document is $0.50. See UCJA Rule 4-202.08.
If you are a governmental user within the state of Utah required by law to obtain court records, you may scan and email a written request for a waiver of fees on government letterhead along with a completed agreement to the Administrative Office of the Courts at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include: 1) your government agency identification, 2) your purpose for using XChange, 3) a statement that the XChange account will only be used for the intended purposes and 4) a completed agreement. The AOC reserves the right to limit the number of accounts in individual agencies.
If you are under contract for public defender services by an entity of the state of Utah, you may qualify for a fee-waived account.
