The mission statement of the Minnesota State Courts is as follows:
To resolve disputes fairly, impartially, and with respect accorded to each and every person who comes to our courts.
Minnesota District Courts handle all of the following divisions from filing to disposition: Civil, Criminal, Family, Juvenile, Probate, Traffic and Conciliation.
There are 11 counties in the Third Judicial District, and there are 22 Judges to hear all cases in our district. We also have "magistrates" throughout the state who handle expedited child support cases.
The Court Administrator’s office is responsible for case management of traffic, civil, family, criminal, juvenile, and probate divisions from time of filing to disposition. This office works closely with the county attorney, court services, human services and sheriff department to insure timely processing of all court cases.
