The Chancery Court handles cases involving domestic relations,
worker’s compensation, estates, trusts, contracts, review of administrative
action of governmental agencies and boards, collection of delinquent taxes,
guardianships, and conservatorships, dissolution of partnerships and
corporations, enforcement of liens, boundary lines, breach of contract, fraud,
election contests, and other matters of a civil nature. The Clerk and Master
handles the paperwork and fees associated with this court, and is sometimes
called upon to act as a Chancellor to the court.
