What does a court researcher do?
There are many companies that hire court researchers, even those that may be new to this type of position. Some companies may even train new researchers explaining how the work needs to be done for their company. As an entry level court researcher, you may need to collect names and other contact information for mortgages, tax liens, death records and other similar data. As you become experience, you will be able to receive better opportunities.
What is the pay like?
The pay can vary depending on the size of the county you are working and how quickly you can familiarize yourself with the terminology. A court researcher can make from $20-$30 per hour.
Are you stuck working locally?
No, you don't have to work just local courthouses and you can travel to surrounding counties if there is available work to complete.
Can you work different companies at the same time?
The answer to this is no. Some companies considered this as a conflict of interest and prefer their court researchers to only work for one company.
