Local Courthouse Protocols

Many individual courthouses have protocols that are applicable to that court alone.  These protocols cover many subjects such as any special arrangements for those appearing in court for the first time, or the process for obtaining a judicial pre-trial.  Contact the local courthouse directly to find out more about local courthouse protocols.
