The Clerk of Superior Court is elected for four years and must be a resident of the county in which he or she is elected. Unlike clerks of court in other states, the Clerk of Superior Court in North Carolina has numerous judicial functions.

As judge of probate, the Clerk has exclusive original jurisdiction over matters relating to the probate of wills, and the administration of estates, including appointing personal representatives, auditing their accounting, and removing them from office if necessary. The Clerk also presides over many other legal matters including adoptions, incompetency proceedings, condemnation of private lands for public use, and foreclosures. The Clerk is responsible for all clerical and record-keeping functions of the district and superior court. In addition, the Clerk receives and disburses money collected each year from court fees and fines. This is the office to which questions regarding guardianship should be directed, and to which annual accounting reports are to be submitted.

According to the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts, in a publication dated April 3, 2017, New Hanover County does not have a designated Disability Access Coordinator for local courts. If accommodations, such as a sign language interpreter, are needed, call the office of the Clerk at the number above. Be prepared to provide the following essential information: the name of the individual needing assistance, the exact type of accommodation(s) needed, the case file number, the date and time of the trial or hearing, the status of the individual (plaintiff, defendant, juror, witness, court observer, other), and, if applicable, the contact information for the attorney representing the individual.

Both handicap parking and building access are available in the rear of the building.

Our Dance Studio provides recreational classes for all ages of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The young adult classes are for these students only, while our younger (child) students are in the general classes. Our classes are one hour a week and are for tap and jazz. We also have an advanced class that covers hip hop. I have been teaching these classes in my studio for 9 years and enjoy the personal relationships that I have made with each and every one of my students. They bring me so much joy every week and love teaching these classes. The students that I have had for a number of years have grown so much which is why we now offer the advanced classes for those that really enjoy dancing and want to learn even more. My assistant for the class is not only a dance teacher but has also been a one-on-one caregiver for many years.

Experience with the Disabilities Community:

I have taught these class for 9 years in my studio. I also like to support my students and have participated in the Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome, and The Gathering. Some of my students also work in the community, at McDonald’s and Beau’s coffee; and I love to visit them and work and show them my love support.
