Mission Statement

The Iowa Judicial Branch dedicates itself to providing independent and
accessible forums for the fair and prompt resolution of disputes,
administering justice under law equity to all persons.

Core Values


Guided by the rule of law and committed to impartiality in all its decisions
and actions, the Iowa Judicial Branch delivers high quality justice and
service to all persons regardless of their gender, race, age, ethnicity,
religion or political affiliation.


Iowa’s courts are committed to reasonable and affordable fees and
procedures, as well as safe and convenient court locations, facilities
accessible to persons with disabilities, and high quality language
interpretation services.  Court instructions, orders, judgments and
forms shall be understandable to the average citizen.
Unless prohibited by law, all court proceedings and records
shall be open and accessible to the public we serve.


Iowa’s courts are staffed by well-trained and hard-working personnel
who are committed to excellence, bound by codes of professional
ethics and conduct, and accountable for the public funds allocated
for judicial branch operations.


Empowered by the constitutional principles of our democracy, the Iowa
Judicial Branch exercises governmental autonomy while maintaining
respect for, and fostering cooperation with, the executive and
legislative branches of government.  Iowa’s courts are free
from, and do not engage in, any partisan politics.


Civil claims, criminal charges, and all other matters coming before
Iowa’s courts shall be addressed with efficiency and dispatch,
consistent with careful and thoughtful deliberation.  To that end,
the Iowa Judicial Branch applies its resources toward practical
and innovative technologies for the administration of justice.
