    Answered . You will have to call the court reporter to get a copy of the transcript, and you'll have to pay a fee. However, if by chance the transcript was filed in the court file, you can get a copy of it from the clerk. You'd still have to pay a fee, but it would be the clerk's charge per page for copying a document in the court file.

    Answered . There should be a court reporter's office within the courthouse from which you can obtain a copy of the proceedings. In some states, courts have gone to digital recordings which will require you to obtain a CD of the hearing and then have it transcribed by a licensed court reporter.
