Document Retrieval Services Company
There are three types of document retrieval that we specialize in and offer in the State of Maine as well as all the other states in the United States:
Document Retrieval for the Mortgage Industry
We conduct a search in the public records of a county courthouse in any of the 3,700+ counties located in the United States! We'll find your missing documents located in the county records being searched. We can find deeds, mortgage or property liens, assignments, or lien releases on a particular property. We also retrieve photocopies or Court Certified copies of the documents being requested. If you prefer, we can report all the information when copies are not required. In most cases we complete this type of document retrieval within 24 hours; however, some remote counties may require more time.
You may know this type of document retrieval as a Deed Search, and are probably looking for a conveyance document on a specific property within a certain time period. Whether you need a deed, mortgage or release, you will have to supply us with name(s) of the grantor or grantee, the property address, the county in which the property is located, etc.
Document Retrieval for Civil Matters
This type of document retrieval involves court case documents located in the county's civil court records. These documents may pertain to divorce cases, foreclosures, or wills, lists of heirs, death certificates, etc. which are located in Probate Court records. You will be asked to supply names, a range of years to search or a case number. If you have the case number, it will drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to locate the document. Often these documents are retrieved within 48 hours. However, if a file needs to be ordered from storage, the case is in mediation or the case is in a judge's chamber, the retrieval will take longer. Our searchers can check the status of these requests regularly until the documents become available.
A UCC Search is another type of document retrieval. UCCs are filed at the county level or state level with the Secretary of State. These document retrieval requests require one or more of the following: name of the debtor and (if possible) name of the secured party, approximate date of the transaction, or recording date. The continuances and terminations of the UCC can be included in the search and copies of all documents or full recording information can be provided, based on the client specifications.

Maine - Economics
In the 1980s, Maine successfully transformed a major portion of its economy into trade, service, and finance industries, the greatest growth occurring in and around Portland. Picturesque coastal and island resorts and the promise of tranquil outdoor life hold a strong appeal for tourists, recreational and seasonal visitors, and, increasingly, retirees, and tourism is an important contributor to the state’s economy.
Many of Maine’s traditional economic activities have experienced difficult times in recent years. Fishing, the state’s earliest industry, has declined considerably, although lobsters are still caught in abundance. Lumbering—the first sawmill in America was built in 1623 on the Piscataqua River—dominated industry and the export trade from the days when the white pines provided masts for the British navy, but with the big trees largely exhausted, Maine loggers now produce chiefly pulp for papermaking. The proximity of harbors to forests early encouraged shipbuilding, which reached its peak in the 19th cent. With the disappearance of wooden ships and the related timber trade, commercial activity slackened. Portland, the largest port, now operates far below its substantial capacity, handling chiefly oil for the pipeline to Montreal. Bath Iron Works, which builds warships, remains the state’s largest single-site employer.
Manufacturing is still the largest sector in the state’s economy. Maine is a leading producer of paper and wood products, which are the most valuable of all manufactures in the state. Food products and transportation equipment are also important, but production of leather goods (especially shoes) has declined. The mineral wealth of the state is considerable. Many varieties of granite, including some superior ornamental types, have been used for construction throughout the nation. Sand and gravel, zinc, and peat are found in addition to stone. However, much of Maine’s abundant natural and industrial resources remain undeveloped.
