Chief Clerk Carol Alt

Photo of Carol Alt, Chief Clerk of the Civil Court Along with Deputy Chief Administrative Judge Fern Fisher, I welcome you to our Court's website. It is my responsibility to assist the Deputy Chief Administrative Judge in the operation and administration of the Civil Court as the executive manager of the Court. The Deputy Chief Administrative Judge provides policy direction to our Court's staff and users, and I insure that these policies are implemented. The clerks of our Court, in my name, are responsible for administering oaths, taking acknowledgments, and signing the process and mandate of the Court.

Our mission is to provide timely and just resolutions to disputes between people within our jurisdiction. Our judicial and non-judicial staff is committed to providing quality service to our users. We hope that this website will be one of the many ways we can be of assistance. Another valuable resource is our interactive phone service, which is available at (646) 386-5700 (for general Civil and Small Claims matters) or (646) 386-5750 (for Housing matters).
