What You’re Probably Wondering
  • Where is the Courthouse?

    • The physical address of the Randolph County Courthouse is 176 E. Salisbury Street, Asheboro, NC 27203, between Fayetteville Street and N. Cox Street. This particular courthouse can be tricky to find at first, as the historic building (built in 1908) is set far back from it’s location on Salisbury Street. When you pull in, the courthouse is directly in front of you on the opposite end of the parking lot.

  • When are they open?

    • Like most Government offices, the courthouse is open from 8:00 in the morning to 5:00 in the evening, during regular business hours; they are closed during Judicial holidays. Many hearings and trials may start at 9:00, but it is recommended you arrive early to ensure you can find parking and get through security with plenty of time to find your courtroom.

  • How do I contact them?

    • By phone:

      • Main number: (336) 328-3000
      • General information/Security: (336) 318-6474

  • Where do I park?

    • This particular courthouse has its own parking lot; there is no fee. The entrances are on Salisbury Street, the first being next to First Bank, located on the corner of Fayetteville and Salisbury Streets. There is another entry a little further up, closer to N. Cox Street (if you hit N. Cox, you’ve gone too far). The building is on the opposite side of the parking lot, straight ahead. Be prepared – you might have to do some walking if it’s a busy court day.

      • Tip: Be careful! The courthouse lot borders the parking lot for Randolph County Emergency Services. Parking in that area is limited to emergency personnel, and you run the risk of getting towed if you park in their spots.

      • Tip: Slow down as you approach the block; the entrances to the parking lot can be tricky to find if it’s a busy time of day, and the signage could be bigger.

  • What can I bring?

    • The Randolph County/Asheboro courthouse does NOT allow cellular phones. You will need to leave your phone in your car. Have some quarters ready so you can utilize the pay phones if needed. Because we live in the day of dialing by “contact,” it’s probably a good idea to bring a list of phone numbers as well (you won’t be able to look them up).

    • Additionally, Randolph County prohibits other electronic/communication devices such as tablets, computers, and cameras – pretty much anything with which you could take a picture or video or transmit information with.

    • You can bring your purse, but remove anything that can be viewed as a possible weapon – besides the obvious, we recommend leaving behind nail files, scissors, etc. It’s a good idea to check your pockets and your bags before leaving – you’d be surprised what you forgot was in there!

    • You can bring books, paperwork, and other items (non-electronic) to pass the time.

    • We recommend dressing in layers or bringing a sweater as it sometimes gets chilly in the courthouse.

  • Where can I have lunch?

    • Worried you might be there all day? If you don’t want to give up your parking spot, there are a couple of eateries in the immediate, surrounding area. Starting from the corner of Fayetteville and Worth Street, you can walk a short distance to Sunset, hang a right, and before you hit Church Street, you’ll pass the Flying Pig Food and Spirits on your right. They offer casual food and atmosphere.

    • If you want something a little fancier, keep walking walk down Sunset just a block more, and visit Positano’s Italian restaurant, to your right near the corner of Church Street.

    • If you feel like you need to put some distance between you and the courthouse, make a left onto Salisbury Street, and drive a couple blocks to Church; make a right, and you’ll find CJ’s Old Towne Restaurant.

  • Who are the District Court Judges?

    ** NOTE: It is very important to remember that you should never, NEVER contact a Judge directly. **

    • The Honorable Jayrene R. Maness serves as the Chief District Court Judge for North Carolina District 19B, where Randolph County is located.

      • The District Court Judges are:
        • The Honorable Stephen A. Bibey;
        • The Honorable Don W. Creed, Jr.;
        • The Honorable Scott C. Etheridge;
        • The Honorable Lee W. Gavin;
        • The Honorable James P. Hill, Jr.; and
        • The Honorable Robert M. Wilkins.
  • What’s unique about this county/courthouse?

    • Randolph County has a “separate” court for family law cases. When you contact the courthouse for information about your case, you will be directed to the Randolph County Family Court. In the courthouse building, Family Court is located on the Second Floor at the end of the hallway, to the left of the Clerk’s Office. There is no public access to Family Court. You will see some black phones outside of the door; these are used to communicate with the personnel in the Family Court office.
