Court Policies

Court staff will be happy to assist you in any way we are able. However, there are certain things we can and cannot do.

We Can:

  • Tell you what the requirements are to have your case considered by the court.
  • Explain and answer questions about court procedures.
  • Give you some information from your case file.
  • Provide you with samples of court forms that are available.
  • Usually answer questions about court deadlines.

We Can Not:

  • Give you legal advice. Only your lawyer can give you legal advice.
  • Tell you whether or not you should bring your case to court.
  • Give you an opinion about what will happen if you bring your case to court.
  • Recommend a lawyer, but we can provide you with the phone number of the local lawyer referral service.
  • Talk to the judge for you about what will happen in your case.
  • Let you talk to the judge outside of court.
  • Change an order issued by a Judge.

If you have any additional questions please contact the court at 856.845.4004, ext. 115 or 116.
