Role of Clerk

The Clerk of Courts office is the official keeper of the records for all Superior Court and State Court filings in Forsyth County, including the Traffic Violations Bureau, and is the custodian and protector of all land and property records in the county. Additional duties include, but are not limited to: managing court trial and grand juries, approving Notaries Public, registering Trade Names, and providing oversight and support to the county Board of Tax Equalization. As an impartial, elected constitutional office accountable only to the citizens of Forsyth County, the Clerk provides some of the most important checks-and-balances needed in both local county government and the state's judicial system.
