What does it mean for court if the disposition code says: ORDS and the disposition description says: Court Order For Release?

It means there is no bail or bond posted. The person is released with a promise to appear in court on the day given. The person is released on his own recognizance.

You can try to call your local sheriff's office and see if the have an inmate/family advocate that can help you understand this.

There's not enough info about where you located to offer anything more specific.

What you are seeing is an incomplete form. It has probably not been long enough for all of the information to be posted on all of the records.

You should be able to ask at your local police station about how to find out what you information you need.

Most likely your fiance should be the one asking the questions. You may have to go to the court house to be able to find out what is happening at the present time as records are slow to be updated.


Not all states/cities/counties keep records in the same manner so check with any of these offices and they will direct you to right person to see.
It is very rare that you can obtain information like this over the telephone and the posting to the records that are available on the Internet may be several days old or even weeks. Go in person if you want current information.

Online, the consensus is that those specific initials depend on the court. But it does show up associated with violation on parole.
