A bailiff will ask you questions to complete a health screening questionnaire, and take your temperature upon entry. Please answer their questions truthfully. Your hearing time is listed on your notice. Please be on time. The Court will strive to handle your case as quickly as possible, but be prepared to wait, possibly in your vehicle. The Court is practicing social distancing and space is limited in the courthouse, and in the courtroom. We appreciate your patience and compliance. Children will not be allowed in the courthouse. Other persons accompanying you may not be allowed to enter unless they are subpoenaed witnesses in hearings set by the Court. See Notice of Precautions elsewhere on this site. 

The office of the Clerk of Superior Court is an administrative office charged with the duties of receiving and filing papers with the Court and recording legal documents. We are not licensed to practice law, and we are forbidden by state law to render legal advice, direction and services. O.C.G.A 15-6-52, 15-19-50. Therefore no one in the Clerk's office will be able to answer any questions you may have regarding the correct procedures to follow or the fees which may be involved except those collected by us. I suggest that you consult an attorney before your court date.
