Circuit Civil


Circuit Civil

This division of court handles various circuit civil cases, including appeals from district court, administrative appeals, workers compensation and probate court appeals. The Circuit Civil division has original jurisdiction over all matters where the amount in controversy exceeds $20,000.00.

Because of the complex nature of these cases we ask of parties involved in a circuit civil case to keep in touch with your attorney regarding any questions you might have. Copies of all notices and judgments are mailed or emailed to your attorney. Attorneys are encouraged to use the Alacourt system to obtain information regarding the status of a court case.

Pro se litigants are encouraged to file their pleading using the Alafile system. To register with the Alafile system, go to Once registered, pro se litigants will receive all of their notices electronically via email.
