Everyone who applies to the Court is received and served only through the Court Office located on the ground floor near the main entrance from Gedimino avenue (through the entrance from Vasario 16-osios street one can get only to courtrooms).
We kindly ask all persons who wish to submit to the Court claims, applications, appeals and other documents, to apply to the Court Office which will accepted documents and submitted them by relation to case files, to offices of court divisions, judges, etc.
We also kindly ask those persons who want to get a necessary document from the Court (copies of decisions and judgments or other documents) to apply to the staff of the Court Office (at the counter). You need to tell them what document you need and an employee of this Office will submit it to you no later than within three hours (where it is not possible to submit a document straight away due to the need to certify its copies, due to judges being busy at court hearings, etc.).
We also kindly ask persons who wish to get access to case files of cases which are being heard or have been heard or to other documents to apply only to the Court Office. Its staff will organize everything in accordance to an established procedure for you to get access to the documents – they will find requested case files or documents, will escort you to premises aimed for this purpose, etc.
At your convenience, documents can also be submitted to the Court after the working hours and during the lunch break.
