Charlotte Area Family Court Resources

Below you will find Charlotte Family Court – Mecklenburg County information and Resources including directions and phone numbers for the courthouse. Charlotte family law matters are heard in the Mecklenburg County Family Court. We have also included information for courthouses in the surrounding counties, including Iredell, Cabarrus, and Union. Remember that courthouse staff cannot give legal advice.  If you decide to represent yourself then you will be responsible for knowing the law the same as an attorney. This means you have to learn civil procedure and evidence rules. Trying your own alimony case is akin to doing your brain surgery. It is not advisable. You should consult with an attorney before filing anything on your own.
