Anderson County Public Records

The term public records as used in Anderson County Public Records is a reference to many types of records made by the government in the pursuit of their mandate to inform their constituents of the things that they are doing, and of the things that other people are doing. The records embraced under this classification are considered as public records, and because of that, they are the best evidence that one could present in order to prove the happening of the event that is reflected upon the four corners of the records, but take note that just because they are the best evidence that one could present does not automatically make them true and accurate.

It is true that these records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times, but that is a function of the fact that these records are the official records of the government, and besides, the presumption is not absolute and may be overturned through the use of competent evidence. More importantly, the presumption would only apply in regards to the information that is actually written within the four corners of the record, which means that if the information is not categorically written on the record, then the record would not be able to prove it. Note as well that the presumption applies only if the records were obtained from the proper sources as only such records are given the presumption of regularity.

This simply means that while there is no need to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate, absent any competent evidence on the part of the party who would claim that the records are false, there is still the need to prove that the records were obtained from the proper sources in order for the presumption in question to be attached to the records.

There are several places where one could make the request for copies of the records in question, but the most important thing that a person interested in a record must do, even before actually making the request, is to identify the record that he or she is interested in given that the records would usually be kept at the place that made them in the first place, but although this is the general rule, not that this may not be the case for records that the law identifies an official custodian for, hence, the importance of knowing where the records are kept. The custodian of the records would also be the one that would identify the method for making the request as different offices usually have different methods that one could use. In any case, the method would either be through the mail or in person depending on the office.
