Files were stored in the registry office of the court. After the war, they were taken over into the registry office of the Regional Court in Ústí nad Labem based in Bílina. They were taken to the branch of the State Archives in Liberec in 1963. An inventory and index were created in 1964 for the personal files of higher-ranking employees. Internal appraisal was performed of the divorce files in 2002 and a new inventory was created for the fonds.
