What We Do
The Superior Court serves all of the citizens of Adams County as one of the 2 existing trial courts. The court has jurisdiction over all felonies, but primarily focuses on misdemeanors, Level 6 felonies and Class D felonies. This court, likewise, has jurisdiction over all civil matters involving all amounts, but the primary focus is in small claims of $10,000 or less.
All traffic cases are filed in this court as well, although many are administered through the traffic violations bureau at the Clerk’s Office
. The court also has jurisdiction over landlord/tenant issues, dissolution of marriage, title and possession of real property and all other cases except for juvenile offenses (under the age of 18).
