Federal Court Districts in North Carolina

May 09, 2011 No Comments by

Need to appeal your case?There are three federal court districts in North Carolina. There are the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of North Carolina. These districts are all part of the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, which itself contains the district courts of several states in this region of the country which includes North Carolina . When a disability claimant files a suit in federal court to appeal a denial for benefits, that person will file in the district which contains their county of residence.

The reason an individual might have to be involved with one of these federal court districts is when their claim has been denied at all levels of the Social Security Disability administrative process. To find out more about the appeals process, visit the Social Security Administration’s website.

Filing a claim in federal court is a complicated process which involves expert knowledge of the filing system, the law and how the courts function. This is why it is important to secure an attorney for your representation. An attorney can file all the necessary paperwork, advocate on your behalf against the government’s attorney and make sure that all the legally important arguments are made before the judge that decides your case in the federal court districts.
