Marion County Circuit Court Clerk Website
The Office of the Circuit Clerk is a state constitutional officer elected by the citizens of Marion County for a four year term.
It is a non-judicial office of the Judicial Branch of Illinois State government. The Circuit Clerk’s office is committed to serving the citizens of Marion County and all participants in the judicial system in a timely, efficient, and competent manner.
All services, information, and court records will be provided with courtesy.
The Circuit Clerk maintains records for the entire Court
system and is the official record keeper of all court related documents. The
office serves as a source of data and information for various government
agencies and the general public. In addition, the Circuit Clerk
collects all fines, fees, costs, and penalties assessed pursuant to
state statutes and county board resolutions and distributes those monies
on a monthly basis to the county, state, and municipalities.
In addition to standard fines and fees, the statutes allow for
collections of these funds through filing fees that are used to support
specific functions of the office. These funds allow the clerk to
maintain records more efficiently and economically through
computerization without the expenditure of tax dollars.
