The Courts of Common Pleas in Ohio have four divisions; general, domestic relations, juvenile, and probate. Traditionally, Henry County has had one judge overseeing all four divisions, while most other counties have had two or more judges in their common pleas courts. Commencing January 1, 2005, the divisions were separated into general-probate and domestic relations-juvenile. This has resulted in two Common Pleas Judges, one for each of the newly defined divisions of the court.


Domestic Relations

  • Annulment, legal separation, divorce and dissolution of marriage proceedings, post legal separation, divorce & dissolution of marriage proceedings.
    UIFSA ( Uniform Interstate Family Support Act) proceedings, civil Domestic violence proceedings, conciliation proceedings.

Juvenile Division

  • Delinquency proceedings, unruly child proceedings, juvenile traffic offender proceedings, juvenile tobacco offender proceedings, abuse, neglect and/or dependency proceedings, proceedings against adults for contributing to the delinquency or unruliness of a child or for failure to send a child to school, parentage, allocation of parental rights & responsibility & child support proceedings for those parents who have not been married to one another.


Henry County is in the Third District Court of Appeals for the State of Ohio which is located in Lima. The Common Pleas Judge is elected for a term of six years.
