Circuit Civil 

This division of the office handles all the various types of circuit civil cases. Due to the complicated nature of these cases, we ask that parties involved in a circuit civil case keep in touch with your attorney regarding any questions you may have concerning your case. Copies of all notices and judgments are mailed to your attorney. Attorneys are encouraged to use the SJIS system to obtain information regarding the status of a court case.
