When you see the clerks in the Circuit Clerk’s office, there are many things you may not know about them.
There are 19 full-time clerks in an office which, per the state’s own statistics, requires 25 full-time clerks. 16 of these clerks process all of the paperwork in the court system. 3 of the clerks work in the driver’s license division.
Clerks in the District, Circuit and Juvenile divisions are the takers, not the makers. Clerks can only process documents received.
