38th CIRCUIT COURT
106 E. FIRST ST., MONROE, MI 48161
The Circuit Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in Michigan. It has jurisdiction over all actions except those given by state law or federal law to another court. The Circuit Court has original jurisdiction in all civil cases involving more than $25,000 and in all criminal cases where the offense is a felony or certain serious misdemeanors. The Circuit Court also hears appeals from District Court, from local government boards (i.e. zoning appeals), and from certain administrative agencies of state government (i.e., Driver's License Appeal Division of the Secretary of State). The Family Division of the Circuit Court handles all domestic relations cases, including Personal Protection Orders, and handles all child protective proceedings (child neglect and abuse cases) and juvenile delinquency cases.
