The Marion County Family Court was officially established in 2003 when the Juvenile, Probate and Domestic Relations Divisions were merged.  The Judges, Clerks of Courts (Family Division), and many of the Court's departments are located at the Marion County Building; 222 West Center Street, Marion, Ohio. All Juvenile, Domestic Relations, Probate and child support hearings are held in these facilities. 

The Edward J. Ruzzo Juvenile Justice Center located at 1440 Mt. Vernon Avenue, Marion, Ohio continues to house the Juvenile Detention Center and the North Central Ohio Rehabilitation Center.  The facility continues to be used daily for Detention Hearings. Those hearings are normally held at 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

This website is intended to provide information to the public as to the functions and services offered by the Court.  We hope that you will find it a useful tool.  Please feel free to contact us at (740) 223-4060 if you have further questions.

Thank you,
