Overview


Welcome

As the Administrative Judge for Civil Matters, I take this opportunity to welcome you to the official website of the Kings County Supreme Court, Civil Term. This courthouse is equipped to handle all non-criminal matters, including name changes, matrimonial matters, foreclosures, mental hygiene applications, elder law cases, and all other civil litigation.

Kings County is the busiest civil term in New York State and we are committed to making it the most user-friendly as well. That commitment is reflected by our courteous and dedicated staff and this user-friendly website. It is our intention to provide quality service to attorneys and all litigants, whether or not you are represented by counsel.

If you are not represented by counsel and need assistance, please visit our Kings Supreme Court Help Center in Room 122C. Please also be aware that the County Clerk's Office and Surrogate's Court are located in this building. Our goal is to make your court experience as smooth and uncomplicated as possible, and we welcome any comments you may have.
