The Circuit Clerk’s Office is responsible for filing, recording and maintaining all pleadings, documents, and funds pertaining to all cases filed in the Circuit and Family Courts.

In addition, the Circuit Clerk’s office also collects various fees, fines and costs associated with the cases listed above. The office is also authorized to hold and/or disburse payments and deposits such as bonds, restitution and witness fees.

The Circuit Clerk’s Office also serves as the jury administrator for the court and is responsible for the management of the petit and grand jury systems in the county. A master list of prospective jurors is created via computerization from two sources: licensed drivers (DMV) and registered voters (Secretary of State).
