Official Court Reporters & Transcripts

The Official Court Reporters for Delaware's Superior Court report courtroom proceedings and prepare certified verbatim transcripts of those proceedings upon request.

How to Get Transcripts

Cost estimates for transcripts of court proceedings can be obtained by submitting a completed transcript request form to the Court Reporters' Office in the appropriate county.

The cost of a transcript is based on a per-page rate which is $3.00 for an original and one copy and $2.00 for one copy for normal delivery; $5.00 for an original and one copy and $3.00 for one copy for expedited delivery; and $6.50 for an original and one copy and $4.00 for one copy for daily, or overnight, delivery.

A deposit from one-half the estimated cost up to the total amount of the estimated cost may be required by the Court Reporters' Office prior to preparation of transcript.

Unless the ordering party is a governmental agency or a member of the Bar, any deposit is required to be made by either a money order or cash, for which a written receipt is provided.

Please complete the Transcript Request Form and submit the completed request to the appropriate county. The form can also be printed and mailed or hand delivered to the appropriate county listed below.

Realtime reporting of courtroom proceedings is also available upon request. Realtime provides, almost instantaneously, the text of words spoken in the courtroom. Realtime provides access to court proceedings for deaf and hard of hearing participants and serves as a trial management tool for judges and attorneys.

Realtime rate for a criminal case is $2.75 per page for one party or agency, or $2.30 per page for two parties or agencies. Mandatory transcript is not required except for appeal or impeachment purposes.

Realtime rate for a civil case is $2.50 per page plus mandatory transcript rate for normal delivery based on present rates.
