The mission of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina is to support, defend and preserve the Constitution of the United States by providing an impartial forum for the just resolution of disputes. The clerk's office, as the doorway to the court, continuously strives to provide quality, courteous, and prompt service with a commitment to professionalism, teamwork and efficiency based on our belief that all people have a right to be treated with fairness and dignity. Our motto is "Service to the Public; Support to the Court."

We serve 44 North Carolina counties from Raleigh to the Atlantic coast and are under the United States Federal Court System in which both civil and criminal cases are filed. Court is held in six cities in the District: Elizabeth City, Fayetteville, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, and Wilmington.

Pleadings may be filed in the Office of the Clerk in Raleigh, Greenville, New Bern or Wilmington regardless of the division or judge to which the case is assigned.
