The following statements have been developed for a dual purpose. The initial goal was to assist personnel in providing consistent, general
information in response to broad inquiries. The secondary purpose is to give members of the public a quick, convenient place to find simple
answers to general questions. These statements can also be found in a written brochure format at any courthouse in our circuit.
We are interested in meeting your needs for information, short of giving you legal advice. If you have suggestions for other topics you
would like to see, please let us know by calling the Court Administration office in Aberdeen at 605-626-2450 or at our in-state toll free no. 1-877-999-5613.
