Coronavirus/COVID-19 Notice
(Updated May 24, 2020)

Because of the pandemic, processing of eviction cases in the Boone County Circuit Court has been delayed.

  • Cases filed by March 31 were on hold, and the court resumed hearing them on May 18.
  • Cases filed in April generally have been set for first appearances in June. New cases now being filed are being set for first appearances in July. In normal times, cases usually are set about three weeks after they are filed.
  • Until further notice, most first appearances and trials will be conducted by video conference rather than in person.
  • Eviction orders cannot be enforced until June 2.

Depending on circumstances, the court could order further delays.

While some other jurisdictions around the country have suspended rent payments and/or mortgage payments altogether, that has not happened in Missouri.
