Magistrate Court

Frequently Asked Questions

The Judges of the Magistrate Court must remain neutral, and therefore they cannot give legal advice to the parties who come before them.  The Deputy Clerks are not lawyers.  It is illegal for them to give legal advice.

The Deputy Clerks can provide limited guidance about court procedures, filing fees, and other requirements and court policies.

The Supreme Court of Georgia has enacted into the Uniform Magistrate Court Rules a list of frequently-asked questions and standard answers the Deputy Clerks can give without violating the prohibition against the unlicensed practice of law.  For your convenience, those questions and answers are provided in an interactive document here:

 Rule 17 Appendix A FAQs


If you have any questions not listed in the Frequently Asked Questions document, you would be well-advised to seek the services of an attorney at law.
