What You Need to Know about Divorce in Vicksburg and Warren County

Home of the famous Civil War museum, Vicksburg sits in central Mississippi’s Warren County. Warren County, Mississippi is in the 9th Chancery Court District which holds Humphreys, Issaquena, Sharkey, Sunflower, and Washington Counties. Warren County is participating in the Mississippi Electronic Courts (MEC) system, which means after the case is initiated, we can file documents from the convenience and privacy of our office. Three full time Judges hear and make decisions on a wide variety of matters, such as divorce, child custody, child support, paternity and other family law matters. They also hear cases involving land matters, probate of estate and mental health.

Once a case is filed in the Warren County Chancery Clerk's office, it is then assigned to a Judge on a rotating basis. We have no control over the Judge assigned to your case, but they are each very experienced. If your case is on a contested track and needs to go to trial, we will contact the Court Administrator, who is the person managing the Judge’s calendar. Many cases do not require a trial. These are called ex parte, which is Latin for “one side only.” Each Judge has one day per week set aside to hear ex parte cases, which is when we have routine Orders entered.
