Unlike other courts of law with clear-cut and strict judicial guidelines, chancery courts administer cases by weighing equity or fairness. Cases could include domestic disputes, wills, guardianships, land disputes, divisions of estates, or business partnership issues. Chancery judges must weigh the evidence and determine a fair resolution. These records often contain a wealth of genealogical information.
