The Circuit Court Clerk’s Office is the steward of the Circuit Court Records. If you are filing documents on your own or looking at public court files, it is assumed that you know the law as to when to file documents, what documents to file, how to file the documents, and how to interpret the law. If you are representing yourself, you are acting as your own attorney.

The Clerks of the Circuit Court are not attorneys and therefore are prohibited from giving out any legal advice (this includes what forms you need to fill out and file or when you need to file documents) and cannot interpret the law.

  • The Circuit Court Clerk's office is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. 
  • The Circuit Court handles all civil cases with claims of more than $25,000.00.
  • The Circuit Court also hears appeals from the lower courts: appeals from local government boards such as zoning appeals; and appeals from some administrative agencies of State Government (such as Drivers License Appeal Division of the Secretary of State).
  • Other general civil cases that are handled in the circuit court may involve claims of negligence, breach of contract and other types of damages.
  • At this time we do not accept any filings via facsimile or email.
