Welcome to the Office of the Clinton County Circuit Clerk

The primary mission of the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Clinton County is to serve the citizens of Clinton County and the participants in the judicial system in a timely, proficient and ethical manner. All services, information and court records will be provided with the utmost courtesy and cost efficiency. My clerks are highly trained and will strive to assist you in a friendly, competent manner.

The Circuit Clerk maintains records for the entire Court system and is the official record keeper of all court-related documents. In addition, the Circuit Clerk collects all fines, fees, costs, and penalties assessed pursuant to state statutes and county board resolutions and distributes those monies on a monthly basis to the county, municipalities and various state agencies. The statutes also allow for collections of these funds through filing fees that are used to support specific functions of this office. These funds allow the Clerk to maintain records more efficiently and economically through computerization without the expenditure of tax dollars.
