As seen on our Home Page, we have several options to choose from when filing Complaints and submitting Answers: filing online, a public law library available on the second floor of the Courthouse, a drop-box on the northwest corner of the Courthouse, or filing in the clerk’s office with, or without, an appointment.

Keeping You Informed

ORDER AMENDING COURTHOUSE SAFETY/SECURITY GUIDELINES FOR ALL CLASSES OF COURTS IN EFFECT AS OF AUGUST 6, 2021.

As COVID variants are reportedly on the rise in our district again, hospitalizations from such are also reportedly on the rise. In the words of Chief Superior Court Judge W. Flethcher Sams, court proceedings are not volutary, and the jail and the courthouse remain the only placed in our community where people have no choice in whether to attend or not. Accordingly, Judge Sams has amended the Courthouse Safety/Security Guidelines for All Classes of Courts effective August 6, 2021. Please click on the heading above or HERE to read this Order.
