A FOIA request may be unnecessary. You may be able to access the information you require via the World Wide Web
without making a FOIA request. Many documents are available through the Department of Justice website.
In addition, frequently requested information is available electronically in the Civil Division's electronic reading room.
If you have visited the electronic reading room and were unable to find the information sought, you may need to make a FOIA request.
Please follow the guidelines below to ensure the quickest possible response.
