We are creating this blog – “On The Civil Side” – in direct response to the popularity of The Criminal Law Blog, administered by our colleague Jeff Welty. Our contributors believe civil cases can be just as interesting and exciting as criminal proceedings and we are going to use this forum to prove it. We will write about issues of interest to court personnel and lawyers working in a variety of civil court proceedings, including general civil district and superior court, domestic relations matters, juvenile cases, small claims court, and hearings before clerks. That’s a lot of variety, but we think it will work. We hope readers will contribute to the discussion by using the comment feature or by emailing the author directly.
We start tomorrow – with a post about the new child support guidelines, of particular interest to those who work in and around family and juvenile court.

We look forward to sharing our thoughts, hearing yours, and revealing the intrigue that lies on the civil side.
