District Court Overview

The District Court is a trial court of limited jurisdiction. It is divided into 101 judicial districts, ranging in size from a single city or township to multiple counties.  A district court has exclusive jurisdiction over all civil litigation up to $25,000 and handles garnishments, eviction proceedings, and land contract, as well as other proceedings including criminal matters. A district court has jurisdiction over all adult misdemeanor cases where punishments do not exceed one year, however, all adult criminal matters, regardless of the nature of the offense, start in the district court including all felonies. The district court issues arrest and search warrants, sets bail and accepts bond, conducts misdemeanor and felony arraignments, presides over probable cause conferences and preliminary examinations for felony offenses and performs civil marriage ceremonies.

Also, a small claims division is provided in district court for civil cases where the amount claimed does not exceed $6,500 (increased to $7,000 in 2024). In these cases, litigants agree to waive their right to a jury, rules of evidence, representation by a lawyer, and the right to appeal from the district judge's decision. If either party objects, the case will be heard by the general civil division of the district court. 

Montcalm County has one District Court -- 64B District Court. The 64B District Court is part of the 8th Circuit, which also encompasses Ionia County's 64A District Court.
