Rowan County Courthouse
About visiting the probate court
I have had the worst experience dealing with the Rowan County Courthouse. I got a speeding ticket before covid and I received a notice that they changed my court date to a different date. The date they gave me changed again however the court house never sent me a second letter of my new court date and when I tried calling the clerk of court I was rudely told that I would have to appear in person in which I live over an hour away! The system was supposed to generate me another court date and mail it to me but they never did...Now I have a FTA and a fine and I will have to get an attorney! This is another case of someone trying to get over on people due to Covid 19
I think the clerks are nice, never had an issue and they have always been helpful to me. As for the bailiffs, some are very rude. The district attorney is definitely disrespectful and I have nothing bad to say about the judges because I haven’t had a unfair or bad outcome. The sheriffs at the door are being selective about who comes in during covid. Singling our blacks who come in together but letting a white man his wife and a under age child in! Smh
Unknowledgeable, Unprofessionally and unwillingly to help/ answer simple questions listed on their own website. My experience was a very hateful and rude one by employee(Kathy S.) at the clerk or court office. The “I don't want to be here“ “I’m too old for this” “I don’t know it’s not my job”, sorry attitude by much of the staff there is horrendously disappointing and blankly written on their face and tone of voice. Even the Security guards speak down to you and raise their voice when asking for directions since main entrance is closed. Completely unprofessional hateful nasty staff. Please consider when rehiring for those positions with our Tax Dollars that the applicants are eager to work, enjoy helping others with professionalism and are knowledgeable of their positions.
