Subscribing to Xchange and Xchange Fees
Notice: Xchange Fee Increase
Beginning September 1, 2020 some fees associated with an Xchange subscription will change.
- Monthly subscriptions will increase from $30 to $40 per month.
- The number of free searches will increase from 200 to 500 searches per month.
- Users will be charged $0.15/search after exceeding 500 searches per month.
- All other fees will remain the same.
While many other fees have increased over the last decade, Xchange fees have remained the same. By increasing the fees now, we hope to continue to provide electronic access to case information at a minimal cost for years to come.
Subscribing to Xchange
Users are charged a fee to cover the costs of providing the Xchange service.
Email a completed agreement to the Administrative Office of the Courts at email@example.com. Please include the word Xchange in the subject line to be sure your email is directed properly. After approving and setting up the account, we will reply via email with login and payment instructions (usually within 48 business hours).
There is an initial fee of $25.00 that is required to establish the account. The subscription fee for each month is $40.00 for up to 500 searches. After 500 searches in a month, the cost of a search is $0.15/search until the next billing cycle starts on the first of the next month. A search is defined as each time the user searches by a specific parameter, such as name, case number or other criteria. 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 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. Please include the word Xchange in the subject line to be sure your email is directed properly. 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. This account may only be used for searches performed in connection with your duties as a public defender. These accounts must be renewed annually. To request a public defender account, scan and email a written request for a waiver of fees, a copy of your current public defender contract and a completed agreement to the Administrative Office of the Courts at email@example.com.
Governmental users outside the state of Utah are subject to the Xchange fees described in UCJA Rule 4-202.08.
Unsubscribing from Xchange
You may unsubscribe from Xchange at any time by emailing a subscription discontinuation request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the word Xchange in the subject line to be sure your email is directed properly. Suspended accounts will be subject to a $25.00 set up fee upon re-activation.
