Necessary hearings for defendants in custody, detained juveniles, and emergency CHINS (child in need of services), domestic violence matters, and other emergency matters will be held.

The court will conduct hearings that do not contain evidence by telephone whenever possible. 

The e-filing system will remain in effect for processing motions and requests. 

Accommodations will be made for those that need to file paperwork by using a drop-off box or mail. 

Child support payments will be accepted by check or money order (no cash) through U.S. mail or a drop-off box at the courthouse.

If you have any questions about your case or need to reschedule, call the court or your attorney. 

If you have had any contact with the virus, have the virus, have a fever, or are at high risk, do not go to the courthouse.
