The Vermont Superior Courts are trial courts in Vermont.

As of July 1, 2010, the former superior, district, family and environmental courts were unified into 14 superior court units, one for each county. Each superior court includes a civil, criminal and family division. As of February 1, 2011, these courts include a probate division as well.[1][2]

The civil division hears cases involving civil matters such as breach of contract, eviction, foreclosure, personal injury, land disputes, medical malpractice, wrongful death cases and appeals from the probate court. The civil division also includes small claims courts.[3]

The criminal division hears cases involving criminal offenses, some civil disputes, civil suspension, fish and wildlife violations, as well as appeals from the Vermont Judicial Bureau.[4]

The family division hears cases involving family-related legal matters such as divorces, annulments, desertions, separations, child support, parentage, domestic abuse, juvenile abuse or neglect, juvenile delinquency and commitments to the Vermont State Hospital.[5]
