Alcovy Judicial Circuit District Attorney
The Alcovy Judicial Circuit was created in 1972 and is composed of Walton and Newton Counties. The Superior Courts of the Alcovy Judicial Circuit are trial courts of general jurisdiction handling both civil and criminal cases. It has exclusive, constitutional jurisdiction to preside over felony cases and cases regarding title to land, divorce, equity, declaratory judgments, habeas corpus, mandamus, quo warrants, prohibition, and adoptions. The Superior Court also corrects errors made by lower courts by issuing writs of certiorari and, for some lower courts, the right to direct review by the Superior Court applies. The Alcovy Judicial Circuit has two specialized programs to aid the citizens of the counties. The Divorcing Parents Program is designed to familiarize parents with the effect of divorce on children. A mediation program is also in use allowing parties to avoid costly jury trials and to speed the disposition of certain cases.
