The Court is located at 29 Second Street West, in a single modern downtown location about 10 minutes south of the Highway 401. Take the McConnell Exit # 792 from the 401, drive south to Second Street, and turn right driving west to just past Pitt Street.
Cornwall Family Court Parking
Very limited free parking is available at the courthouse (off Third Street), but you'll need to arrive early in the morning to snag a space. While short term meter parking is available on street, because court times are unpredictable your best parking bet is in the municipal lot on the south side of Second Street just across from the courthouse.
