***THE COURT IS EXPERIENCING PHONE TROUBLES.  NO JURORS NEED TO REPORT FOR DUTY ON MONDAY, MAY 2ND.***


Welcome! 

The Trial Court uses Tyler Technologies' Odyssey case management system.  Access the Odyssey system HERE or using the menu item "Search Cases and Calendars" at the left.

 

THE TRIAL COURT WILL BE CLOSED ON MONDAY, MAY 30, 2016 IN OBSERVANCE OF MEMORIAL DAY.

 

ATTENTION!  CHANGE IN CASE FILING FEES EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2016

Effective March, 1, 2016, the Court is required to collect an "electronic filing system fee" of $25.00 for all civil actions filed in the circuit and probate courts in addition to the $150 filing fee.  The $25.00 electronic filing system fee is charged on all civil actions which the State defines as all cases with the exception of a “criminal case, civil infraction action, a proceeding commenced in the probate court under section 3982 of the estates and protected individuals code, 1988 PA 386, MCL 700.3982, or a proceeding involving a juvenile under chapter XIIA of the probate code of 1939, 1939 PA 288, MCL 712A.1 to 712 A.32.”

This is a mandatory fee required by the State pursuant to MCL 600.1986.  Our court does not keep any of this fee.  The State is collecting this fee to build a statewide e-filing portal.  Until that portal is built and the SCAO approves our use of that portal, our court will not have e-filing.  If the court waives the filing fee because of indigency or inability to pay, the court is instructed to also waive the electronic system filing fee.
