bindover cases

assault, battery, affray, criminal damage and others

By law, there are some cases that must be handled by the State or Superior Courts and cannot be handled by the Municipal Court of South Fulton.  When someone receives a citation for those cases, they are processed by the South Fulton Clerk of Court and then sent to the State or Superior Courts of Fulton County.  The process is lengthy and could take some time.  If you were cited for Battery, Assault, Criminal Damage to Property, Affray, or other similar charges your case has been or will be bound over.  

To determine if your case has been received by the State Court please contact the State Court Solicitor's office 404-612-4800 or the Fulton County Clerk of Court 404-613-5085
