23rd Judicial Circuit

Welcome to the website of the 23rd Judicial Circuit of the State of Illinois. The 23rd Judicial Circuit consists of DeKalb and Kendall Counties and is the proud home of Northern Illinois University.

The 23rd Judicial Circuit operates courthouses in Yorkville and Sycamore as well as branch courts in DeKalb and Sandwich. The schedule for the various court facilities can be found on this website.

This website is designed to provide you with information regarding court operations within the 23rd Judicial Circuit. The website does not provide any legal advice. If you need legal advice, you should contact your attorney, or you may choose to utilize one of the agencies listed in the website. Both Kendall and DeKalb Counties provide Legal Self Help centers. You can find links to both centers on this website as well.

The judges, Court Administrators, and the entire court staff work diligently to make our system efficient and user friendly. We are continually looking at ways to improve our operations, and constructive criticism and suggestions are always appreciated.
