Wisconsin CCAP search is done through the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access(WCCA) website. This allows the public to perform case searches and access case records in compliance with the Wisconsin Open Record Law.
How to Perform Case Search
Case information that is found while searching the WCCA is uploaded through the Wisconsin CCAP Search Management system. To perform a Wisconsin CCAP search, you need to access the WCCA website. Access to the website is done through the following link https://wcca.wicourts.gov/. Information obtained through this website is deemed as accurate information but not official or certified.
The information found on the WCCA website for a Wisconsin CCAP case search is entered into the circuit court case management system by the clerks of the circuit court in the filing county for the case. Information not found on the WCCA website may not be open to the public. Records that are considered confidential and inaccessible per the Wisconsin Open Records Law include:
Termination of parental rights
The Wisconsin CCAP Search Management System was not implemented simultaneously by each county’s court. Likewise, old cases were converted and the information provided was made at the discretion of each circuit court individually.
Accessing Information for Case Search
Accessing information for a case through the Wisconsin CCAP search can be performed by searching the case number, parties name on the case, and/or statewide or countywide. Case type information that is accessible is criminal, civil, traffic, probate, and family case records uploaded in the CCAP.
You are able to perform an advanced search to add modifiers to your search or refine your search. This includes adding information such as the DA number, the date the case was filed, the date of birth of the party on the case, citation number, and/or disposition date.
The official recordkeeper for the case information found through the WCCA is the circuit court in the county the case was filed in. The maintenance of changes, WCCA periodic maintenance, and the technical support for the WCCA is handled through the Wisconsin CCAP case search management system.
