The reason why public records like Tennessee Public Records exists is so that they could be used by the government in order to inform the public of the things that the government had done in their pursuit of the mandate that the people had given them and because the information that is being sought by those who would make the request for copies of these records are of such importance that the government has no right to deny the same to the people. After all, the information contained within these records are often of such importance that they could help the people who would make the request for them decide for themselves as to a number of situations.
Of course, it must be pointed out that public records are also limited, in the sense that they could only prove that which is written on the records and nothing else. This means that if the information that is sought to be proved is not actually reflected on the records, then these records could not prove them, even if it be common sense that that which is not written on the records should have occurred first before that which is written on the records could have happened. An example of this would be the fact that death records could not prove the fact of the birth of the person who had died.
As the official records of the government, these records are given the presumption of regularity, a presumption that means that the contents of the records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times, though note that even if that is the case, the presumption would only be prima facie, which means that it is still possible for any person to question the contents of the records through the use of competent evidence. In any case, the contents of the records would not be presumed to be accurate if the records were not obtained from the official sources.
There are various sources for copies of these records and the most important thing that would have to be remembered when making the request for copies of these records would be that these records could only be obtained from the place that made the records in the first place, unless the law identifies an official custodian of the records in question, in which case, it is only at that place that the law had identified where copies of the records could be requested from. The method for making the request would depend on the office where the request would be made, but in general, requests could be made either through the mail or in person.
Tennessee Court Records Public Access may also be done online through the use of online databases which could provide information that would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the various official sources. While these databases could provide information that would be substantially the same as that which could be found from the official databases, do note that these are not official sources, hence, they could not enjoy the presumption of regularity.
