Magistrate Court

The Magistrates' Division of the District Court was created in 1969. From the standpoint of local government, the most direct effect of their creation was the abolition of probate courts, justice courts, and police courts, and transfer of their powers to the District Court or the Magistrates' Division of the District Court (Idaho Code § 1-103). This reorganization of the court system established a single court system embracing all levels of judicial administration in the state.

Magistrate Court Judges
Small Claims
Every Magistrate's Division has a "Small Claims Department of the Magistrate's Division" which has jurisdiction over cases for the recovery of money where the amount of each claim does not exceed $5,000 (Idaho Code § 1-2301).



The Court Assistance Office (CAO) is a one-stop clearinghouse to access legal services and other resources for those involved in family law cases and other civil (non-criminal) court matters. The Court Assistance Officer is in Bingham County every Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
