Sullivan County Justice Courts
Whether you have a civil or a criminal case, there’s a good chance that you journey will start at one of the local Justice Courts. These are also called “City Courts,” “Town Courts,” and “Village Courts,” depending on where you live, but they all serve the same function. Low-dollar civil disputes ($15,000 or less), traffic violations, and misdemeanors will be settled exclusively in these courts, while higher-value civil disputes and felonies will move up to the County or Supreme Court.

Sullivan County Court
If you’ve committed a felony or you have a civil case worth more than $15,000 but less than $25,000, your case may begin in a justice court, but will quickly move to the county court, located in Monticello. The Sullivan County Courthouse is located at:
Monicello, NY 12701
You can find directions to the courthouse by clicking on the map below and typing in your home or work address.
Free parking is available behind the courthouse and the building is open between 9 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday (except for state holidays).
Whether you’re here for a criminal or civil trial, the same judge (Hon. Frank LaBuda) will hear your case.
Sullivan County Supreme Court
If you have a civil case worth more than $25,000 or your are involved in divorce litigation, your case will go to the Supreme Court instead of the County Court. Both are at the same courthouse, but a different judge will hear your case in a separate courtroom. The Supreme Court justice is Hon. Stephen G. Schick.
Unlike the federal court system, the Sullivan County Supreme Court is not the state’s highest court. It has original jurisdiction over all civil and criminal matters, but generally only hears the cases that lie outside of the other courts’ jurisdictions, such as high-dollar torts and divorce litigation. If you need to appeal your case, you will appeal to the Court of Appeals, not the Supreme Court.
Sullivan County Family Court
If you have a matter of family law (except for divorce), such as a custody or child support case, a case of domestic abuse or neglect, or a juvenile delinquency case, your case will likely not be tried in the County Court (some exceptions are made for domestic assault felonies). Instead, you will go the Family Court, which is nearby at:
100 North Street
Monticello, NY 12701
You can find directions to the courthouse by clicking on the map below.
