There are five levels and/or types of Courts that serve Inverness and Richmond Counties. They include Supreme Court, Supreme Court (Family Division), Provincial Court, Small Claims Court, and Probate Court. There is also a satellite courthouse in Arichat, administered out of Port Hawkesbury.

Justices and Judges from across the province preside in the Port Hawkesbury and Arichat. An adjudicator presides over Small Claims Court. It sits in the Municipal Building in Arichat for Richmond County matters. The Registrar or a Judge presides over Probate Court.

Since Port Hawkesbury is in Cape Breton, all matters involving family law are dealt with in the Supreme Court Family Division. To learn more about the differences between the Supreme Court Family Division and the Family Court CLICK HERE >>
