A MESSAGE FROM
THE JEFFERSON COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT CLERK
REGARDING THE COVID-19 EMERGENCY
The Jefferson County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office’s top concern is the safety and well-being of our customers and TEAM members. Following recent Kentucky Supreme Court Orders as well as Executive Orders from the Governor, the Courts and Driver’s License Offices are beginning to gradually expand services and reopen. For the health and safety of all, many of our processes and procedures have been modified in order for our office to operate and serve our citizens under the current conditions. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience or delays caused by these necessary changes as we strive to serve all of our citizens in the safest, most efficient manner possible during these difficult days.
The following is a list of the contact-less services that are available via Internet or phone to eliminate an in-person visit to our office:
Prepayable Traffic Citations and Court Fines/Fees: You can pay certain court fines and fees (e.g.: prepayable traffic citations) online using the Kentucky Court of Justice’s secure ePay service — kycourts.gov/payments — or by phone at (866) 396-1751. Please be advised that you must make a full payment at least 3 business days before your first scheduled court date.
eFiling: Attorneys have the ability to file court documents online via eFiling without having to make a trip to a courthouse for civil and criminal cases in Circuit Court and District Court. Attorneys must complete training and become certified before they are able to file cases electronically in Kentucky. The Administrative Office of the Courts provides online opportunities for attorneys to complete eFiling training and certification. For more information on eFiling, click here — kycourts.gov/efiling
Dropboxes: To make a filing in a pending case in Circuit or District Court, you may drop off your filing or paperwork at either of two dropboxes, located inside the Louis D. Brandeis Hall of Justice and the Jefferson County Judicial Center during regular office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The dropboxes are checked every hour, and security is provided by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Docket, Motion Hours, Etc.: Important information on Trial Dockets, Motion Hours, Criminal Background Checks, Expungements and more is also available online at — kycourts.gov
