South Jersey Court Information and Hours

South Jersey consists of the seven southern counties in the State of New Jersey.  These are Atlantic County, Burlington County, Camden County, Cape May County, Cumberland County, Gloucester County, and Salem County.  Sometimes parts of Ocean County are included on the list, so we have included it here for convenience.

This page has information on the courthouses for each of these counties, including their address, operation hours, and emergency closing information.  If you are a client or family member of a client of the Law Offices of John Zarych, this information can help you figure out where to go for certain hearings and trials.

When Do I Go to These Courthouses?

The courthouses listed here are the seats of the New Jersey Superior Court.  This is the name of the standard level of court which handles trials to determine guilt or innocence in a criminal case.  They also handle appeals from those trials.  If you are charged with a low-level crime, a traffic offense, or a local ordinance violation, you will not use these courts.  Those things are handled at municipal courts in New Jersey.  If you are appearing for your preliminary hearing, arraignment, or other early parts of your case, those also occur at municipal courts.

The county courthouses that house the Superior Court are for trials and hearings related to those trials.  That means if you are charged with a serious criminal offense, you will likely be at these courthouses after you have gone through your preliminary matters at the local municipal courthouse.

Locations and Hours

One of the most important things about your upcoming criminal trial is appearing to court.  That means showing-up at the correct building on time.  This can be stressful, especially if your transportation options are limited (either in general or as a part of DWI charges).  The following information will help you find the county courthouse for each of South Jersey’s counties and Ocean County.  Also provided is the court’s phone number and information on how to get emergency closing information (such as in the case of snowstorms).  Most courts post closing info on this site, but some also have phone numbers listed.
