Court Administration

What We Do

Court Administration is the administrative arm of the court that ensures the civil and criminal courts of Peoria County and the Tenth Judicial Circuit operate in an effective and organized manner.  The Court Administrator and Chief Financial Officer both report directly to the Chief Judge of the Tenth Judicial Circuit.  The Court Administrator serves as the liaison for the court system to ensure the proper operation of the business of the court and the Chief Financial Officer oversees the Court's $12 million budget.   

Court Administration is located in room 215 of the Peoria County Courthouse. Staff is available to set up appointments for the Visitation Center.  Scheduling of court dates is done in the Circuit Clerk's office.

Circuit Court Rules

Contacting a Judge

Judges can not be contacted directly.  If you have a question about your case, contact the Peoria County Circuit Clerk's Office or the Circuit Clerk in the county where your case is being heard.  If you want to speak to the Judge, you can file the necessary forms to get back into court.

Scheduling Hearings

The Peoria County Circuit Clerk's office schedules court hearings.  Email or call the assigned courtroom clerk for the courtroom in which a hearing needs to be scheduled.
