Bucks County 07-1-01 Magisterial District Court

If you ever have to go to Magisterial District Court in Bucks County, it’s beneficial if you know where the courthouse is located. You don’t want to wait around until the last minute to find out where you’re supposed to go because this could have a negative impact on your case. Aside from your attorney, you should try to take someone with you to court so that you’re not quite as nervous as you would be if you were by yourself. However, a qualified and professional attorney will be able to walk you through your case and advise you about any questions that you shouldn’t answer and those that you should answer while in front of the judge.

Another benefit of having an attorney present with you in Bucks County 07-1-01 Magisterial District Court is that you can work together to craft a defense based on the evidence that the prosecution could have against you and the information that you’re able to offer to the attorney about what happened when you were charged with the crime.

Most of the time, you’re going to receive a notification in plenty of time for your court hearing. The notification will list the details about where the courthouse is located as well as which room you’re supposed to go to once you arrive at the building. You’ll also receive information about your charges and your attorney if you have decided to hire your own. Soon after getting the notification, you should visit the court building to find out where you’re supposed to go as a way to prepare for your court date.

The 07-1-01 Magisterial District Court usually holds trials that include traffic citations and violations, bench warrant hearings, and cases that don’t involve a jury. You’ll usually go to this court if you have a preliminary hearing before a major court case as well so that the judge can read your rights and so that you can enter your plea. This is also the time when you can request a court-appointed attorney or state that you plan to hire your own.

Since there are two different courts in the area, you need to clarify which one you’re supposed to go to on the day of your court case. Your attorney will know more about the court information, but you need to double-check with the court clerk in order to make sure you have the correct information. If you do not show up for court, then a bench warrant could be issued for failure to appear. This can be avoided as long as you read the information that you’re given and find the correct building in Bucks County ahead of time.

A type of case that is often handled in this type of court is landlord and tenant disputes, such as eviction notices and rent payments that are due. The court also handles all types of summary offenses along with shoplifting, criminal mischief, and issues pertaining to your license. Most of the cases that are heard in the court are misdemeanors or violations instead of felonies. The judges who oversee the court can also issue warrants when needed. They can also perform marriage ceremonies for those who want to get married in a small setting with only a few family members or friends present. Even though a case can begin in this court, it can end up in a felony court if there are more charges involved or if there is enough evidence to send the case to a higher court, which is another detail that you want to talk to your attorney about when you receive your notification.

"I found Michael Kotik via the internet with the hope by someone to help my son in what we thought was something routine. Long story short after being mislead by the prior firm and received no results and my son sat for 18 months in prison because "no one knew what was going on" Michael was able to not only..."
