Connecticut has a general jurisdiction trial court, a probate court, and two levels of appeals courts. The appeals courts consist of the Appellate Court, and the Connecticut Supreme Court.
The Connecticut Superior Court is a single unified trial court, consisting of 15 judicial districts, 22 geographical areas, and 14 juvenile districts. The Superior Court is comprised of civil, criminal, housing, and family divisions. The civil division handles all civil jury and non-jury cases, landlord-tenant cases, and small claims cases. The criminal division handles violations, infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. The family division hears cases relating to divorce, child custody, child support, restraining orders, and juvenile delinquency. The Superior Court has a special subdivision specifically for juvenile matters. Those records are closed to the public.
The Probate Court is responsible for matters concerning estates, trusts, adoptions, conservators, guardians, and commitment of the mentally ill.
