Welcome to the Court Reminder System provided by the Circuit Court of Cook County.

This Court Reminder System is intended to provide telephonic and/or text message court date reminders to those persons arrested and charged with a felony or misdemeanor offense in Cook County.  The telephonic and/or text message reminder will provide defendants (i.e. those accused of a crime) with details of their next court date, time, and courthouse location for which they are scheduled to appear.  By registering, a court date reminder will be sent to defendants approximately 14, 7, and 2 days before their next court date.  You may sign up for yourself or on behalf of a family member or friend.

If you are trying to register, but do not have the case number, bond number, or CB number (required to complete Option 1) you can select Option 2 and register with the defendant’s first name, last name, birthdate, and the date the defendant was arrested. If you do not have the date the defendant was arrested, you can call any court location (link provided on the right) and request the case number (to complete Option 1) as long as you have the defendant’s first name, last name, and birthdate. See Court House Locations page for details. To register for reminders for multiple cases, you must submit the form below for each case individually.
