Frequently Asked Questions

    An appeal can be filed within the district location in which your case was tried.

    All locations have office hours of 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

    In the event of a bona fide emergency (a life is in immediate danger), a petition for an emergency order of protection may be filed at any suburban courthouse. If it is not an emergency, a regular order of protection may also be filed at the courthouse.

    Depending on where the ticket was issued, the courtroom is assigned based upon the police agency involved. You may check our Online Electronic Case Docket Lookup to look up your court information.

    The defendant or a representative must appear in court on the date of your summons. If a representative appears, that person must explain why the defendant cannot appear and request a continuance. Otherwise, the date must be advanced through the motion court of the specific district court in question requesting that the judge change the date. (A motion to advance cannot be filed in a case involving an accident, except for in District 2, where you may motion to advance as long as there was not any personal injury.)
