Defendants are encouraged to sign up for the text and email alerts by completing the form below or via the Adams County Clerk of Court mobile app. Click on the More icon and select “Court Appearance Notification sign up.”

Be sure to include your mobile phone number and/or email address that you wish to have the notifications sent to.
