Finding a court date involves finding the jurisdiction of a case, finding the case number and looking it up online. Failing to appear in court on the scheduled date may lead one to lose the case, pay a fine or even get arrested.

Step 1: Know the jurisdiction

Find the court that is scheduled to hear your case. A person can figure this out using the area or location where committed a crime. A case that was appealed is usually heard in the High Court.

Step 2: Get the case number

A person can use court documents, official court notices and police reports to find the case number. The format of the number varies depending on the jurisdiction.

Step 3: Find the date

Visit the court website and find the Court Date Lookup link to find the date using the case number.
