Passaic County Court Records

Litigation Courts of limited jurisdiction are courts that deal with only specific types of court cases. They are commonly located in/near any county courthouse so are usually presided by just a single judge. A judge sitting with no jury hears much of the cases heard as a result of these courts. Some examples of trial courts in limited jurisdiction comprise of:

Small claims court: This court in most cases handles disagreements between private people associated with a relatively low amount, such as, less than a couple of thousands of dollars.

Municipal court: This court frequently handles cases regarding offenses against area ordinances.

Probate : This court takes care of matters concerning applying the estate of a person who has passed away. It sees that this provisions of a will are carried out or sees that a property is distributed according to state law if he/she died intestate (without a will).

Family : This court deals with matters concerning child care, annulments, divorce, alimony, guardianship, child support, etc.

Traffic court: This court frequently handles minor infractions of traffic laws and regulations.

Juvenile court: This court generally handles cases affecting delinquent children under some age, for example, 18 or 21 years of age.

Many states possess a county court, which may usually be purely administrative (just like ) or regularly have jurisdiction over criminal cases including felonies (such as in this state) In those states using an administrative court, the body acts like the primary agency with the local government. In the states that contain a judicial county court, such as California, it generally tackles trials for felonies, and also appeals of misdemeanors by local courts plus some small claims .

It is a court of first jurisdiction, and thus deals with mostly trials of accused felons. The Passaic Area Court is recognized and has the ability to take care of the prosecution of all infractions committed in the County.

Otherwise in america, the courts from original jurisdiction in most states have jurisdiction during a particular county, parish, shire, or borough; but instead of being called "county court" they can be called "superior court" or "circuit court". Multiple courts from typically limited original jurisdiction within the county are normally called "district courts" as well as, if located on and serving a selected municipality, "municipal courts"; and are subordinate to the county superior or circuit court.
