Administrative Office of the Courts & Violations Bureau Closings
Generally, when the clerks’ offices in courts in Portland (Cumberland County Superior, Unified Criminal Division, Portland District, & Supreme Judicial Court) or Augusta (Kennebec County Superior, Unified Criminal Division, & Augusta District) are closed, the Administrative Office of the Courts located in the same city is closed; and, in most instances, when the Lewiston District Court is closed, the Violations Bureau is closed. If you are planning to do business with any of those offices, please call to confirm that the office is open.
Unless otherwise noted, the courts and clerk's windows will be closed from 8 a.m. to noon during Administrative Week to allow court staff to complete important work. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
