York County Courts Begin Move to York County Judicial Center in Biddeford

Date: 4/13/2023

The Maine Judicial Branch announced that tomorrow, April 14, the York County Superior Court will begin the move that, over a two-and-a-half-week period, will consolidate all York County courts into the recently completed York Judicial Center (YJC) at 515 Elm Street (Route One) in Biddeford.

"We have been carefully planning this move for months. Our overarching aim is to minimize any disruption to the public and the bar in accessing York County courts," said Julie W.

The YJC will be fully open to the public by Wednesday, May 3.
