Check out people
Find out a little more about that new person in your life or even an old boyfriend/girlfriend.
All states except ACT and QLD (and TAS after August 2020) identify DV related matters, plus four states also identify the current and/or past offence/s for which that person has been before the courts.
Alias / AKA (Also Known As) records are also identified.
Looking to use a professional person such as a doctor or lawyer? Disciplinary action against a person by a professional body (via a state Civil Administration Tribunal) can also be quite informative.
Check out a business or trades organisation
As the CDA database also allows you to search company / business names, it’s also an ideal way to see whether that organisation has been before a civil or criminal court in the past.
Thinking of using a business or a trades person? A quick CDA database search can sometimes prove worthwhile over and above online reviews.
Disclaimer: The CDA Database only shows details of persons/organisations that were scheduled to have their matter heard before a court. No guilt or innocence should be assumed from any name being in the database.
Alerts can be created in the CDA Database for a person's name or a that of a business.
After creating an Alert, you will receive an email whenever a future record for that same name is added to the database.
This is an ideal option if you want to keep track of any new records for one or more people and/or companies.
Any registered user (paid or unpaid) of the CDA database can create an Alert.
Accessing the CDA Database
To access the CDA database, simply click the button below and create an account. You will then receive an email with a link that needs to be activated so your email address can be verified. Please contact us if you have any problems receiving that verification link.
When you account is verified, you can conduct searches to see if a name is in the database and how many records there are for that name. Upgrading to paid access will be necessary to see the actual records connected to those names.
