Glendale Heights Field Court
DuPage County has field courts (also called “branch courts”) located throughout the county. Many traffic tickets are heard in these courthouses instead of the main DuPage County Courthouse.
On February 1, 2017, the Glendale Heights Field Court was relocated from the Glendale Heights Police Department to Room 1003 of the DuPage County Courthouse.
Technically, Glendale Heights Field Court is still a branch court. However, it is located inside the main courthouse in Wheaton.
Therefore, the directions to get there are the same as they are for the main DuPage County Courthouse. When you enter the building and pass through security, you will want to continue ahead on the main floor. Do not go up the escalators. You will then pass the helpdesk on your left and the entrance to the DuPage County Clerk’s office on the right. Take a left down the hallways and you will see a set of 2 courtrooms on your left. Those rooms are numbered 1001 and 1003. Right outside those rooms are kiosks. If you have a lawyer, do not check in with those kiosks. Your lawyer checks in for you. If you do not have a lawyer, use the kiosk. Then you can enter the courtroom and have a seat until your case is called.
