Selecting the Correct Office
When opening a new civil case, the first step is to select the correct divisional office.
For a Complaint, the office is determined by:
1) the county of the defendant, or
2) if the defendant is out-of-state, the county of the plaintiff, or
3) if neither 1 or 2 apply, the county in which the incident occurred occasioning the law suit.
In a Notice of Removal, you must select the divisional office where the court for the original case is located.
You may check the map of offices and divisions to verify your selection.
