Cook County Courthouses
Cook County is an exception to the one courthouse norm, for good reason.
The United States Census Bureau estimates the 2012 population to be more
than 5.2 million people, which is larger than the population of 29 states.
Cook County is so large that one courthouse would never suffice so the
county has six district courthouses, plus a seventh dedicated solely to
the resolution of domestic violence cases.
These courthouses are located in different cities throughout the county,
Chicago: The District 1 Courthouse, known as the
Daley Center is at 50 West Washington Street
Skokie: The District 2 Courthouse is in Skokie at 5600 Old Orchard Road
Rolling Meadows: The District 3 Courthouse is in Rolling Meadows at 2121 Euclid
Maywood: The District 4 Courthouse is in Maywood at 1500 Maybrook Drive
Bridgeview: The District 5 Courthouse is in Bridgeview at 10220 S. 76th Avenue
Markham: The District 6 Courthouse is in Markham at 16501 Kedzie Avenue
Domestic violence court: This courthouse is in Chicago at 555 W. Harrison Street
We represent clients at the domestic violence courthouse infrequently because
this court is mostly used for cases where the only issue is domestic violence
and the issuance of an
order of protection.
In domestic violence cases where there are other
family law issues, such as
support, or other matters, the Domestic Violence Courtrooms are not equipped to
handle these issues so cases are frequently transferred to the Daley Center.
