What is a Clerk of Courts?
The clerk of courts serves the court they are assigned to and oversees the records and functions of the court. Many people first hear of a "clerk of court" when they have to interact with the local government to pay a fine, pay child support, or work with county records. Probate cases are another common reason that citizens will seek out their local clerk of courts.
The person who serves as clerk of court is often an elected official who serves a term in their county of jurisdiction. Clerk of courts often have several physical office locations. Because several services that pass through the court are official records, you may need to physically visit a court location. You can often find the address and directions to your local clerk of court on the clerk of court's website.

Many citizens end up interacting with a superior court for legal cases that include family law, criminal cases, probate, revenue recovery and and some traffic tickets. Superior courts are often state trial courts that hear cases criminal and non-criminal in nature. Superior courts are also often made up of a series of individual courts that all remain under the jurisdiction of the superior court.

Circuit courts hear cases of an inferior nature when compared to the higher superior courts, which can take appeals. What does a circuit court do? Circuit courts can hear cases of a wide variety, including family court, drug court, probate and small claims.
