Domestic Violence Court in Mecklenburg County
 
There are two courtrooms devoted solely to the issues of domestic violence---one civil and the other criminal. A District Court judge presides over both. In both cases, a plaintiff or victim may request ex parte relief twenty-four hours a day. For civil cases, a filing plaintiff will get access to the judge during business hours, with the help of a newly implemented facilitation process out of the SelfServe Center .

After five o'clock, filing plaintiffs and victims may proceed to the Jail to have a Magistrate contact a District Court Judge in case of emergency. Victim's Assistance representatives are present in the courtroom to assist those plaintiffs/victims in need of further aid.

For additional information reference the Domestic Violence Courts: Policies and Procedures Manual
