Probate Court


Due to the extension of the Supreme Court Order limiting services of Courts in Georgia, the Gordon County Probate Court will be forced to continue traffic / misdemeanor court cases until AT LEAST after the date of May 13, 2020. Any court dates scheduled prior to that date will be continued to a later date. That date will be announced by mail once determined. If the Supreme Court Order is extended beyond that date, the information will be posted referencing such extension. Thank you for your patience during these oddly trying times.
