Major Wyoming courts that kept records of genealogical value were established as follows:

There are nine judicial districts in Wyoming. Each district has both District and Circuit Courts. Most records of genealogical value will be found at the District Court.  The District Court has general jurisdiction over civil cases, including divorces, criminal cases, juvenile and probate matters, and some appeals. Each county has a Clerk for the District Court. To obtain copies of these court records, contact the Clerk of the District Court in each county.

The Family History Library has copies of a few probate records from these courts, such as the "attachment of real estate" certificates from Natrona County (1921 to 1969) and Crook County (1923 to 1950). From Crook County the library also has a few adoption records (1889 to 1910).

Justice of the peace courts are countywide courts with jurisdiction over minor civil actions and misdemeanors.

The Supreme Court is the statewide appellate court.
