IndyBarApplication Process for New Attorney ID Cards to Begin Dec. 20

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

It’s renewal time for City-County Building Attorney Identification Cards, and the process has gone online. Starting Dec. 20, attorneys seeking to renew cards or apply for new cards can do so online at https://www.biz.indygov.org/attorneycards/.

The online process will allow attorneys to more conveniently complete the application and provide necessary documentation, including verification of good standing and photo uploading. Upon completion of the online application, cards can be picked up every Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Court Administrator’s Office (Room T-1221, 12th Floor, City-County Building). A government issued photo ID must be provided when picking up the card. Cards issued beginning Jan. 1, 2014, will be valid until Dec. 31, 2015.

The attorney identification cards, which cost $35, are offered as a privilege to members of the Indiana bar as officers of the court. An authorized attorney identification card may be presented to a court security officer at a security screening station, permitting the attorney to enter a secured area without having his or her person or articles automatically subjected to a search. The Court Administrator’s office must be notified immediately if there is a change in status of the attorney applicant, such as resignation, suspension or disbarment from the practice of law, retirement, or if the card is lost or stolen.

Questions regarding the online application can be directed to 317-233-2114 or customerservice@logoindiana.com. Contact the Court Administrator’s office (317-327-4747) or the IndyBar (317-269-2000) with questions about the cards or the application process.

  1. I will be filing a lawsuit in Tippecanoe County for so many violations in a case we became involved in, including failure to contact through mail, Violation of 4th Amendment rights, Violation of Civil Rights, and so on. Even the Indiana Ombudsmen Bureau found violations and I have now received the report and they are demanding further training in Tippecanoe County. I am going to make sure they follow through!!!

  3. I thought the purpose of the criminal justice center was to consolidate all the criminal services and get them out of downtown to clean up the place. Why in the HELL are the civil courts moving? What a burden to all the downtown law firms. Now we all get to work downtown, but then have to get in a car and COMMUTE to court? Who approved this idiocy?

  4. I drive through the neighborhood whenever I go to the City-County Building or the Federal Courthouse. The surrounding streets are all two way with only two lanes of traffic, and traffic is very slow during rush hour. I hope that enough money has been allocated to allow for improvement of the surrounding streets.

  5. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!
