The District Court hears all felony criminal cases, equity cases, domestic relations cases, and civil cases involving more than $52,000. It also functions as an appellate court in deciding appeals from county courts and various administrative agencies.
The Clerk of the District Court, besides being the administrative officer of the court, is responsible for the record keeping and collection of child support payments, the record keeping of criminal and civil cases, maintenance of the court's dockets and processing judgments.
Courts No Longer Authorized to Accept E-mailed Documents
On May 20, 2021 the Chief Justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court discontinued the temporary allowance of e-mail documents for court filings which had been permitted during the Pandemic. That administrative order is found here.
Individuals may file documents with the Court in person, by mail, and by fax.
