36th District Court Announces Changes to In-Person Services Due to COVID-19

Jan 10, 2022

Effective Tuesday, January 11, 2022 the 36th District Court will restrict entry into the building to only those individuals who have scheduled hearings or are seeking to pay a bond.  Due to the rapid and dramatic increase in the City of Detroit’s COVID-19 positivity rate, it has become necessary to limit in-person transactions to every extent possible.

Services such as payments, filings, and other transactions may be handled remotely or online. For more information, please visit our website at or call 313-965-2200.

If you need to make a payment, please do so via mail, online, or at one of the DivDat kiosks located outside of the courthouse and throughout the Metro Detroit area (see for locations). You may also use your mobile device to access DivDat Mobile Pay.

As one of the busiest courts in the nation, the 36th District Court is in a unique position when it comes to the number of users who enter our building. Therefore, it is essential that these steps are taken to protect the people who work and conduct business at the Court, and to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update you with any necessary information.

The Court appreciates the patience and understanding of all parties during this time.
