Welcome to the Clerk of Superior Court's on-line office. The Clerk of Superior Court
is an elected official charged with the filing and safekeeping of land and property
records as well as the civil and criminal files of the court.
The Office was created in 1798 by the state's constitution and is one of the four
constitutional offices found in each county. The probate judge, tax commissioner
and sheriff are the other three.
The duties of the clerk are statutory, varied and numerous. They are ministerial
in nature and can be found in literally hundreds of statutes created by the legislature.
In addition to the Official Code of Georgia the clerk is also obligated to follow
the rules of the court for which he or she serves.
