Attending Court
Attendance
The Henderson Circuit Court and the Henderson County General Sessions Court encourage all persons who are charged with a criminal offense or who are summoned/subpoenaed to:

      • Attend Court Date
      • Be on Time
      • Accompanied by a parent or guardian if under 18 years old.

Subpoenas
A subpoena is a court order that requires a person to appear in court to give testimony or to present documents and related articles to be produced as evidence at a hearing. A process server or officer will serve a witness personally with a subpoena. An attorney may also ask a witness to appear voluntarily without serving a subpoena.

If you have received a subpoena, follow the instructions on it. Failing to follow a subpoena is considered contempt of court and a warrant may be issued for your arrest.

Warrants
If you fail to appear in court as ordered, the Court will issue a warrant for your arrest and you can be jailed and/or fined.  For more information, comments, or questions please contact us at (731) 968-2031.
