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. Since that time, the Circuit Clerk's office has become one of the busiest Circuit Clerk's offices in the State of Illinois.
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!)
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.
