Connecticut Court Records

Jurisdictions of the Court
Superior Courts are actually organized into divisions and special sessions by case type.
As such, every Superior Court has court divisions for Civil, Criminal, Family and Juvenile Cases.

Court Divisions:
The Civil Division has five parts: Civil Jury, Civil Non-Jury, Landlord/Tenant (including Summary Process/eviction), Administrative Appeals, and Small Claims.

The Criminal division handles crimes and other violations/ infractions.

The Family Division handles cases about family relationships, including child custody, divorce, child support, and restraining orders.

The Juvenile Division will handle cases involving the care of children or the behavior of a child, including but not limited to: child or youth neglect, elimination of parental rights, emancipation of a minor, delinquency and cases involving families with service needs (FWSN).

Probate Courts will hear cases that include wills, trusts, ownership of real and personal property, guardianships, estates, civil commitment, termination of parental rights, paternity, adoptions and name changes.
