Ingham Circuit and Probate Courts move to Phase Two


Supreme Court guidelines allow the courts to move back to Phase Two.  Under Phase Two, the following changes are being put into place:

• The public hours of the Veterans Memorial Courthouse, 313 W. Kalamazoo Street in Lansing, will change to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. [The Mason Historical Courthouse, where the 30th Circuit Court also has a presence, was temporarily closed in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and remains closed for the foreseeable future.]

• There will be no restriction on entry into the courthouse for those seeking to do business with the Circuit or Probate Court. [All public entering the court facility are subject to security screening, COVID-19 screening, and temperature check.]

• While remote work by staff will continue as feasible, there will be an increase in on-site work to meet operational needs.

• The Friend of the Court office and the Juvenile Division office will be reopened to the public.

• The Ingham County Family Center, housing a school and day treatment center for youth in the juvenile justice system, will reopen to on-site instruction.
