Schedule an Appointment

The court’s appointment system will allow you to schedule and book an appointment with a Court Clerk, Self-Help or Enhanced Collections.

Services Offered:

  • Appointment with a Clerk: Court clerks can provide general information about court rules, procedures, and practices (see the MC-800 (external site pdf )). Court staff cannot provide you legal advice about your case.
    • In-Person: Appointments can be made in-person with a clerk at the clerk’s office for family law, probate, civil, unlawful detainers (evictions) and small claims.
    • Online: Appointments can be made with a clerk remotely via Zoom for family law, probate, civil, unlawful detainers (evictions) and small claims. Documents can be uploaded for review by the clerk for the appointment using the court’s document portal. At an online appointment, the court clerk will not be able to accept your documents for filing. Electronic filing is available (civil, unlawful detainers (evictions), small claims or family law, probate and traffic).
    • Phone: Appointments can be made with a clerk over the phone for traffic.

  • Self-Help: Self Help appointments are with Court employees who provide legal information and procedure in civil, child support, family law, small claims, and probate matters. Self Help does not assist with criminal or traffic matters.

  • Enhanced Collections: Appointments are with an Enhanced Collections Officer which can provide options if you need assistance in paying court ordered fines and fees on a criminal or traffic case.
    • In-Person: Appointments can be made to be seen on any of the following Enhanced Collections services: payment plans, proof of hardship, tax intercept, victim restitution and wage garnishment.

In order to complete the appointment booking process, you must provide a valid contact number and email address.

You may revoke consent by calling us at 877-955-3463 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding judicial holidays) or by visiting any of our Enhanced Collections court locations.

Court staff cannot represent any party or parent nor provide legal advice. Court staff is available to the parties of the case and communications between you and court staff are not confidential. For legal advice or strategy, confidential conversation, or attorney representation at a hearing, you must consult a legal aid or private attorney.

After accepting the appointment agreement, you will be routed to the Appointment Booking page. Then choose a service under ‘Select Service’.
