Effective immediately, Edgecombe County Courthouse phone numbers have changed.

Due to an updated statewide telephone system and a new statewide calling plan, many counties across the state are receiving updated phone numbers.

"We will appreciate your patience as we learn this new phone system. Please listen carefully to instructions to ensure you reach the right party.

Where it is relevant, the automated attendants (AA) provides information regarding online self-help assistance. Redirecting callers to the website where they can access online services such as pay NCticket, step by step instructions or download forms.

AAs will always give the caller an option to speak with a staff member. As the constituency needs continue to increase, as North Carolina struggles to recovery to boost revenue in lean times, staffing for judicial system offices has either remained static or decreased.

The N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts is the administrative agency of the N.C.  Judicial Department (judicial branch). Among the many programs and services that it provides to courts statewide, the NCAOC uses technology to improve the delivery of services to the public and to provide greater and more convenient access to court personnel.
