Marion County Circuit Court is excited to announce you can now receive text messages from the court to remind you about upcoming hearings and to provide you updates on your case. By providing an active cell phone number to the court you will be able to receive:
- Hearing reminders (provided 7 days and 1 day before your next court hearing); and
- Hearing updates (such as scheduled, rescheduled, or cancelled hearings).
How to Sign up for Text Message Reminders and Updates
You may contact the court to sign up for this free service by calling 503-588-5105. You will need to provide your cell phone number and your case number(s) to court staff, who will send an opt-in message to your cell phone. Once you receive that message, respond “Yes" to start receiving court hearing notifications.
If the court already has your cell phone number, you may automatically receive an initial opt-in message along with a hearing notification for an upcoming hearing date. If you respond “Yes" you will receive notifications about future hearings from the court, if you do not respond or respond “No" you will not receive any additional text messages related to that case.
All opt-in messages and hearing notifications will be sent from the following phone numbers:
