Civil Department

There are numerous types of civil matters which come before the court. Because of the number of possible civil actions and the potential complexity of each, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CONSULT AN ATTORNEY BEFORE COMMENCING LEGAL ACTION CONCERNING CIVIL MATTERS.

Court staff are not permitted to give legal advice, or advise you about which forms need to be filed. Parties should contact an attorney or research the issue themselves.  If you are self-represented in a civil matter, you may want to familiarize yourself with going to court and preparing for your trial.
