North Carolina's unified Judicial Branch is one of three equal and independent branches of state government. Some counties are grouped together to form one judicial district. The Twentieth Judicial District is comprised of Anson County, Richmond County, Union County, and Stanly County. Each county has a courthouse. The Twentieth Judicial District is further divided into two superior court judicial districts, 20A (Anson and Richmond Counties) and 20B (Union and Stanly Counties.)
