In addition, the Court Clerk serves as the administrative arm of the Court and is responsible for all financial duties relating to the Court system.

Change in Status

Please notify the Circuit Clerk's office and/or the State Disbursement Unit immediately of any changes you may have. If you need to change your address or any information regarding your case, the change in status form, located at the Circuit Clerk's office, should be filled out and mailed or delivered to our office. If your check goes through the SDU, we will notify them, or you can call them directly to notify them of any changes. This is very important because if we do not receive an address change, your check could be delayed.

Please be aware that pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 924, the Court requires both parents in any case in which custody or visitation is an issue to attend and complete a four-hour parent education course.
