A comprehensive list of the new Fees 

Plymouth is recognized as the County Seat at which our main office is located.  At this location any initial and subsequent filings are accepted.  We also provide certified copies, decrees and certificates from this office. 

Since space is limited, we only have one courtroom  for purposes of hearings, motions and trials.  At the present time, all current files, except paternity and abuse prevention cases, are located at this office.  If you wish to view a file, you may come to the Plymouth Office at any time during our business hours above.
