     Dakota County is 593 square miles in area and has a population of approximately 400,000. Situated in the southeast corner of the Twin Cities Metropolitan area, it is the third most populous county in the state of Minnesota. Dakota County maintains a land use mixture of 1/3 urban, 1/3 suburban, and 1/3 rural. This combination of land use and the confluence of two major rivers (the Mississippi and Minnesota) that form the county's northern and eastern borders makes Dakota County a unique geographic area.

     Founded in 1849, Dakota County was one of the original nine counties created by the Minnesota Territory Legislature. Thus, it was established before Minnesota was considered a state. The County seat moved to Hastings in 1857, where it has remained.

     Between 1990 and 2000, Dakota County's population grew by nearly 30%. This growth continues, with another five percent increase expected by the end of the decade. In recent years, second and third ring communities in Dakota County (Burnsville, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Apple Valley, Farmington, Lakeville, and Rosemount) have dramatically increased in population, as development continues to move outwards from the urban core of Minneapolis and St. Paul, into suburban municipalities.   (www.co.dakota.mn.us )

The Dakota County civil divisions located in Apple Valley, West St. Paul and Hastings process Unlawful Detainers, Conciliation Court Appeals, Implied Consents, lawsuits under $50,000 and numerous other types of cases. In addition, the Hastings Civil Judgment Department handles lawsuits involving claims over $50,000. The Judgment Department also dockets judgments, issues writ of executions and files satisfactions of judgments for all Dakota County judgments. (www.mncourts.gov)
