This Order shall not restrict any Judge’s authority to conduct a case-by-case exception to the herein ordered continuances when reviewing or considering trials, after conferring with all counsel of record;

This Order does not affect or impede and Judge’s consideration of motions that can be resolved by the Court, without a court appearance. Nor does this Order preclude telephonic conferences set to resolve court matters;

IN RE:  COURT OPERATIONS UNDER THE EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES CREATED BY COVID-19 AND RELATED CORONAVIRUS NO. 2

This Court continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and will enter Orders as data and circumstances dictate.  The Court has the responsibility to balance the public-health risks involved with in-court appearances as it relates to fulfilling its constitutional and statutory duty to keep courts open to the public in a safe manner.

This Court has operated under Orders issued by the Mississippi Supreme Court and the national emergency declaration by the President of the United States of America since the declaration of COVID-19 being classified as a “global pandemic.” The resources for each of the aforementioned counties and the nature of the facilities in each of the aforementioned counties vary, including courthouse and courtroom layouts, the number of employees in each of the buildings, (which includes court staff and other personnel with various other offices), and availability of waiting areas.  Because litigants have to gain access to courtrooms it is imperative that the ingress and egress also fall within the confines of this Order.

The Court has the responsibility to monitor the available resources from the CDC as well as the MSDH and other resources available to determine how to effectively proceed in each of its facilities, being aware that many litigants and attorneys are mandated to make appearances in a forum that must remain safe an effective to ensure that their rights to appear in court are protected during this national emergency.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that all persons entering the Chancery Courtrooms and Chancery Courthouses of the 10th Chancery District, shall wear face coverings and submit themselves to temperature checks until further Order of the Court.

A copy of this Order shall be filed in each county within the 10th Chancery District and displayed in each courthouse.

THUS ORDERED THIS THE 6TH DAY OF OCTOBER, A.D., 2020.

Chancery Court

Third Chancery District

DeSoto County is included in the Third Chancery District, which includes six counties along the I-55 corridor from DeSoto to Montgomery County. The chancellors, also referred to as Chancery Court judges, hear special court cases involving wills and estates, support and custody of minor children, divorces and alimony, and lunacy or commitment hearings.

The judge also is known as an equity judge whose area of duty involves more than narrow and rigid interpretations of laws and focuses on protection of individual rights. The Chancery Court also handles other matters, such as petitions to incorporate or enlarge a city, the establishment and management of drainage districts, and children's welfare funds.

Staff

The duty of the Chancery Court administrator is to assist the chancellor to insure the smooth operation of the Chancery Court. In order to accomplish this duty, the administrators set the Chancery Court dockets, ensure that proper papers are filed pertaining to services provided within this court, and that correct court records are kept.

DeSoto County's Chancery Court Judges and their administrators are:

  • Chancellor Percy Lynchard, Jr.
    • Administrator: Linda Stinson
    • Phone: 662-469-8374
  • Chancellor Mitchell M. Lundy, Jr.
    • Administrator: Melanie Wells
    • Phone: 662-226-1343
  • Chancellor Vicki Daniels
    • Administrator: Chrystal Winters
    • Phone: 662-563-8715

Chancery Clerk

The staff of the Chancery Clerk's Office prepares appeal records for cases that go to the State Supreme Court. Passport applications, minutes from Chancery Court, and the bonds on county officials are filed and recorded. The Chancery Court also keeps indexes for wills, estates, and divorces.

All records, except adoptions, are prepared, filed, indexed, and maintained for access by the public.

Access to Justice

With the support of the Mississippi Supreme Court and the Mississippi Bar Association, the Mississippi Access to Justice Commission provides free legal answers and legal forms to the public. Visit the Access to Justice website for more information.

Purchasing Real Property

Be sure a title search is done before any money is exchanged. A search of records in the Chancery Clerk's Office will determine any outstanding mortgages, taxes or other liens and whether or not the seller has legal title to the property. Any attorney or title company can do a title search and prepare your deed. It is illegal for the Chancery Clerk's Office to search these records or prepare your deed.

Before recording your deed it must contain the following:

  • Signature of seller or sellers - notarized.
  • Legal description with indexing instructions.
  • Names, addresses and telephone numbers of the sellers, buyers and deed preparer.

If you purchase and occupy property before January 1st, you are eligible to apply for Homestead Exemption in the Tax Assessor's office - filing period January 1st, through April 1st. Filing for Homestead Exemption reduces your taxes tremendously. If you are eligible, please be sure and take advantage of this savings.

Property taxes must be paid each year.  Statements are mailed from the Tax Collector's Office each December for that year's taxes. Be sure the Tax Collector has your current mailing address. You may pay current taxes in three (3) installments.

If your property taxes are not paid by the last Monday in August, then it is auctioned off to the highest bidder which is called a Tax Sale, or if no one bids then it is stricken off to the State. It then becomes the duty of The Chancery Clerk to collect all delinquent years taxes before the current year can be paid. (No installments on delinquent taxes - cash or money order - NO PERSONAL CHECKS ACCEPTED).

An individual has two years from the date of this sale to redeem their property. If it is not redeemed before that two years is up, then it matures to the State or if an individual purchased it at the Tax Sale, that individual is given a Tax Deed. Which means you no longer own your property.
