As of Monday, December 3rd, Kendall & DeKalb Counties are now the 23rd Judicial Court and are no longer part of the 16th Judicial Court. What this means is that all paperwork for case filings will need to be changed to say Twenty Third Judicial Court. Paperwork that says Sixteenth Judicial Court in reference to Kendall & DeKalb counties will no longer be accepted. The Courier News published an article on the creation of the 23rd Judicial Court on Monday, December 3rd.
Additionally, the DeKalb County Recorder fees are going up as of January 1, 2013. Please see the fee schedule here: DeKalb County Recorder Fees – Effective Jan. 2013
