Clerk of Courts

Update as of 1/4/2021 - With the rise of COVID-19 cases in our area, the Clerk's Office will resume back to taking appointments for filings and title searching.  Please call our office at 706-387-6255 to make an appointment or for questions.  Thank you.

With regards to the Covid-19 Judicial Emergency Order, the Clerk's Office is taking measures to enforce social distancing for essential filings.  If you need to come in, please limit your party members to as few as necessary.  A temporary wait outside of our office may be required when we've met capacity while helping other customers.  We have a drop box by our door for any paperwork that is completed and ready to file, but Magistrate needs to come into the office.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not able to notarize anything for the public at this time.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Our office now has Civil and Criminal records searchable online.  You can go to our website to access these records.  You are able to search for free, but it will ask you to create a username and password if you want to print copies.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office.

-Info about our office-

The Clerk of Court handles Superior & State civil & criminal records, Juvenile court, adoptions, real estate records, notaries, trade names and military discharges(DD214).  We now also hold the records for Magistrate civil & criminal filings.  You can still view the Magistrate filing fees & access the forms through the regular page or click the left tab for the link.

Our real estate records date back to when the County was first established in 1796, with digital images available on public terminals dating back to January 1988. These records are available in our deed room, and employees will be glad to assist anyone not familiar with our programs.

Since 1999 we have been connected statewide with the Georgia Superior Court Clerk Cooperative Authority - with a public terminal in our office allowing an individual to check all counties for real estate records from one location.

We are currently imaging our older real estate, civil and criminal records so that copies will be more readily available to the public.  For any civil or criminal records requested prior to 1998, please call ahead to check availability, and 24 hours notice is needed to acquire items located from our archived storage.

We accept Cash, Money Order or Cashiers Check.  We are now set up for Debit/Credit cards, but there is a 4% convenience fee for this option.  

The Clerk of Superior Court is committed to providing quality customer service. However, the clerk’s office cannot provide legal advice or do title searches. If you have questions about what to file or your legal rights, please seek the advice from an attorney licensed to practice law in Georgia.
