The office of the Circuit Clerk keeps the records of court cases. These records include:

Civil cases–law suit, foreclosure, divorce, paternity
Criminal cases–felonies, misdemeanors
Traffic, ordinance, conservation violations
Probate–wills, estates
(birth, death, and marriage records are found in the County Clerk’s office)
While most files are public record, some cases are impounded–not for public view–adoption, juvenile, mental health.

Jury Duty:

This office summons jurors for Grand and Petit Jury. Jurors are randomly selected by computer, based on information received from voter registration, the IL Secretary of State, including IL Identification Cards, IL Disabled Person Identification Cards, and the IL Dept. of Employment Security. When chosen, you will receive a jury summons and questionnaire via the US Mail.

Please remember that the Circuit Clerk cannot dispense legal advice.
