PLEASE CALL BEFORE PHYSICALLY COMING TO THE COURTHOUSE
The Buffalo County Courthouse may look different to the public. While the building is open for services, many departments recommend calling before physically coming to the courthouse as there may be additional restrictions for visitors. Please consider conducting business via phone, e-mail, fax, mail or using the facility drop box to the maximum extent possible. Services may also be available curbside.
If you need to meet with a specific staff member or department, please call to make an appointment. If you are meeting with a staff member in their office, you may be asked to wear a mask to protect the health and safety of all employees and visitors.
Please maintain social distancing using the markings identified in the hallways. Honor the occupancy limit on the elevator.
Conference rooms are not available for public use until further notice. Public meetings will be made available via electronic means whenever possible.
Personal court appearances will continue to be limited to very rare and statutorily necessary hearings. Hearings will continue to be held telephonically or by other alternative means. If you have an upcoming hearing or need to inquire about the status of your case, please call the appropriate office by phone.
We appreciate your cooperation and working together during this challenging time.
