About Additional Info:
Formed in 1801 even before Ohio became a state, the Common Pleas Court serves the people of Clermont County as the constitutionally created general jurisdiction trial court for the administration of justice within the county borders. The General Division of the Clermont County Common Pleas Court has original jurisdiction to hear all adult felony criminal cases and all civil cases regardless of the dollar amount in controversy. The Court also has the authority to issue injunctions and certain legal writs. The Court has appellate jurisdiction over the decisions of some state and local administrative agencies, boards, and commissions. In addition, the Court presides over the Clermont County Grand Jury, which has the power to hand down indictments in criminal cases. The Court is responsible for the operation of the Probation Department, which supervises those criminal defendants placed on community control as part of their sentence.The jurisdiction of the General Division of the Common Pleas Court is separate from the other divisions. The Domestic Relations Division, located at 2340 Clermont Center Drive in Batavia, presides over cases involving divorce, dissolution, child custody, visitation, and support, and other family matters. The Probate Division, located at 2379 Clermont Center Drive in Batavia hears and decides matters involving wills, estates, trusts, guardianships, adoptions, name changes, and other matters. The Juvenile Court, located at 2340 Clermont Center Drive in Batavia, has legal authority over cases involving children who are alleged to be delinquent, unruly, abused, neglected, abandoned, or otherwise in need of legal attention. The General Division hears and decides allegations of serious crimes committed by adults, civil matters involving contracts, personal injury, business issues, real estate including foreclosures, and all other matters not within the legal authority of the other divisions.The four Common Pleas Court judges are elected to six-year terms on a non-partisan ballot. A person must be an attorney with at least six years of experience in the practice of law to be elected or appointed to the court. The Judges and their dedicated staff strive to administer justice fairly, impartially, and promptly in all cases that come before the Court.
