The Superior Court Clerk is charged with custody of original court records. Records are held and maintained for safekeeping and are open for inspection by the public in accordance with Uniform Superior Court Rule 21(USCR 21) unless sealed by court order. All non-court related records, (deeds, liens, UCCs, etc.) are open for inspection by the public in accordance with the Open Records Act in Georgia, O.C.G.A. §50-18-70 and all other statutes relating to the duties and responsibilities of the Clerk of Superior and State Court. Therefore “open records requests” are not necessary, as court records are available for inspection by the public when the Clerk’s office is open.

These records are available for public inspection from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. – Monday through Friday of each week except for official holidays in the Clerk’s office of Superior and State Courts. All records are available, with the exception of those few files checked out for use in court and court rulings by the judges. Review of the actual files and their contents must be made within the confines of the clerk’s office under the supervision of the clerk’s staff. Public computer terminals are available within the Clerk’s office whereby proceedings and images are available for viewing without supervision.**
