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 volume of work completed by this office increases;
the number of people that visit our office 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 16 years ago, a feat accomplished
with great employees. Doing more with less – it is our way of doing
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. You can contact
firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-753-6674. It is my pleasure to
serve you as Circuit Clerk.
