Circuit Court Jurisdiction

Alabama’s trial courts of general jurisdiction are the Circuit Courts. This court hears all civil matters where the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000, all criminal prosecutions involving felony offenses and family court matters. The Circuit Court has concurrent jurisdiction with the District Court and in all civil matters where the amount in controversy exceeds $6,000 but does not exceed $10,000, exclusive of interest and costs. Additionally, the Circuit Courts exercise appellate jurisdiction over cases appealed from the District Courts, Probate Court, Etowah County’s Municipal Courts and certain administrative and municipal Boards.
