Justice of the Peace Court 20
New Castle County
Public Safety Building
300 North Walnut Street
Wilmington, DE 19801
|Monday - Friday
8:00 am - Midnight
*Effective Saturday, June 6, 2015 and until further notice, Justice of the Peace Court 20 will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays. The hours for Court 20 will now be Monday through Friday from 08:00 am until 12 midnight.
This change in hours is necessitated because of the retirements of several judges in New Castle County at the end of May causing a shortage of judicial officers in New Castle County in the immediate future. We anticipate the appointment of new judges soon which will be followed by required judicial training. We will re-evaluate the operating hours for Court 20 in early October when we anticipate our judicial staffing to return to normal.
We will be making some staffing changes at Justice of the Peace Court 11 for this time period in order to better accommodate the needs of the public and police agencies at that location.
Parking: Metered off-street parking available.
