The General Division of the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County plans to hold most hearings by videoconference or by telephone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit our Video-Phone Conference website for further information.
SCAM ALERT!! If you receive a phone call telling you that the caller is affiliated with this court and that you must appear for a hearing at the court or face the issuance of an arrest warrant unless you pay some money to the court, please hang up. This is a scam. Neither the Court nor the Clerk’s office would ever call anyone demanding money in that way, and we do not call anyone about arrest warrants.
