HENRY COUNTY STATE COURT

Henry county state court is now conducting all court proceedings via zoom. All court events except for some probation hearings may be attended either live or online.

Some probationers may be directed to attend court in person. We encourage all other persons to attend virtually. To attend online as a participant, you should receive an invitation in the mail, or you may call the clerk at 770.288.7800 or the Solicitor (Prosecutor) at 770.288.7178. If you are a party, attorney, or witness attending online, you must follow the instructions to log in per the invitation or appear in person in the courtroom.

The clerk’s office is open during regular business hours.

Most traffic tickets can be paid any time at wwww.henrytix.com or by phone at 1.470.288.1755.

For everyone’s health and safety, all persons must submit to a covid-19 health screening before entering the judicial center; must wear a mask covering mouth and nose at all times; and must observe social distancing as directed by court or sheriff’s staff.
