The Sangamon County Circuit Clerk’s Office
The Sangamon County Circuit Clerk's Office serves as the
administrative arm of our court system. The Circuit Clerk is
responsible for keeping the official record in all proceedings
that come before the Sangamon County Courts. The Circuit Clerk
has financial as well as administrative and managerial duties.
We collect and distribute all money owed to the Court.
The Clerk’s Office has enjoyed a long history dating to
1821. This office is one of the few that can boast that Abraham
Lincoln was one of our customers, and according to many, "He was
a pretty good attorney.” Since that time, the Circuit Clerk's
office has become one of the busiest Circuit Clerk's offices in
the State of Illinois.
Our employees are just as proud of our accomplishments
today as our predecessors were. We have embraced technology. Our
staff and management share a common goal of providing fast,
friendly and accurate service in the most economical way
possible. (We are taxpayers too!) Every year, the number of
people that visit our office and the volume of work completed
increases, as does the number of files that are processed. We
take pride in the fact that this office has fewer employees than
it did 19 years ago, a feat accomplished with great employees.
Doing more with less – it is our way of doing business.
This website is intended to help you navigate through the
court system with ease. When you have questions, don’t hesitate
to ask any staff member or me. We are here to assist you.
