14A District Court, Michigan

14A District Court

Please be advised: Beginning Monday, July 18th, 2016 thru Friday July 29th, 2016, the probation department at the Chelsea Courthouse will be undergoing renovation and will not be open to the public. Probation staff will be temporarily working out of the Saline Courthouse during this time period. There will be no access to phones, so please do not leave any messages, as your calls will not be returned. Should you need assistance, please contact Agent Yeakey or her coordinator Mr. Bachman via email. There may be a delay in response time, so we appreciate your patience during this process. You may drop off your monthly report forms upstairs in Chelsea at the clerk’s office. Please do not fax your report forms during this period, as it is uncertain if the fax machine will be operational. Again, we appreciate your cooperation during this renovation process.
