Surrogate's Court


Court Location

The courthouse is located at the corner of Tioga Street and Court Street. Persons coming to the courthouse enter through the main entrance on Tioga Street. They must first go through a magnetometer at the security station. The Surrogate Court Clerk's Office is located directly to the right just past the security station.

There is no public parking in the parking lot adjacent to the courthouse, except for one space allocated for handicapped parking on the south side of the building. There is a ramp on the south side of the building with access to the basement. Persons entering through this door must go through a check by a security person. There is an elevator on this floor for persons wanting to go to any of the offices on the main floor (where the Surrogate Court Clerk's Office is located), as well as the offices on the second and third floors.
