Welcome to the Whiteside County Courts Zoom Information Page
Because of the Corona Virus, Zoom, is being offered as an extended service to help maintain social distancing.
"Attorneys and Litigants physically present in the Courtroom will have priority on Court days.
Physically present parties will have their cases heard first. If you choose to use Zoom - please be aware that your case will be delayed until the Judge has dealt with those cases physically present first. You may experience up to an hour delay depending on the Court call that day"
