Family Court

Welcome to the 9th Judicial District's Family Court information page. It is our goal for this site to be a useful resource for the community we serve by providing the latest information and proper paperwork to make your visit more productive therefore resulting in less appearances.

We hope you will find the links provided here and on the left column of this page to be of assistance. Help Center, for example, contains a do-it-yourself program that enables a person seeking paternity or support modification to enter the information online to prepare a form to bring to court. Also E-Courts, allows litigants who already have file numbers to research upcoming court dates. Contact and resource information is also provided for each of the five counties in the district.

Court personnel are always available during normal business hours if your particular situation requires further assistance.
