We recognize that the courthouse can be strange, confusing and sometimes an intimidating place for much of our population. The clerk and deputy clerks have a strong desire to help all parties who ask for assistance. But please be aware that the clerk and deputy clerks are STRICTLY FORBIDDEN to practice law or give legal advice - Georgia code 15-19-51(A)(4). Sound legal advice should only come from a licensed practicing attorney and we highly recommend all parties seek competent legal services. Please be understanding when we say that we cannot answer your questions.
We are here to serve you to the best of our abilities.
