Circuit Civil 

          This division of the office handles various circuit civil cases, including appeals from District Civil, administrative appeals, and probate court appeals. The Circuit Civil division has original jurisdiction over all matters where the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000. Due to the complicated nature of these cases, we ask that parties involved in a circuit civil case keep in touch with their attorneys regarding any questions they may have concerning their case. Copies of all notices and judgments are mailed to your attorney. Attorneys are encouraged to use the Alacourt system to obtain information regarding the status of a court case.

            Pro se litigants are encouraged to flile their pleadings electronically using the Alafile system.  To register with the Alafile system, go to Once registered, pro se litigants will receive all of their notices electronically via email. 

Below you will find a list of common filing fees.  Please note that filing fees are subject to change.
