The court code database is based on the court name and is sorted alphabetically by the Court Code assigned by you at the time the court profile is created in the Setup Court Information process. Consequently, when you are creating codes it is very helpful to follow a certain naming format so that everyone can be more efficient and benefit in the process. Also, by following a specific naming format, you can print out all of your cases in the following combinations: all in that court, or all with that judge. This can be very helpful since you can quickly be reminded of other cases to work on while you are at that court or with that judge.
The court code contains five (5) characters consisting of letters and numbers, and court codes can be tailored easily to accommodate any numbers of city, county, state or federal courts including separate districts and divisions. If there is more than one court for a jurisdiction, consider adding a sequential number as the final character.
Here are examples of a naming format for Southwest Missouri courts using the following county letter designations:
|COUNTY COURTS||GC1||GREENE COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT-DIVISION ___|
|CC1||CHRISTIAN COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT-DIVISION ___|
|GCP||GREENE COUNTY PROBATE COURT ___|
|CITY COURTS||OM1||OZARK MUNICIPAL|
|CITY COURTS||SM1||SPRINGFIELD MUNICIPAL|
