Clerks are responsible for record-keeping and providing information about court proceedings and legal documents including criminal reports and arrest records. They may maintain records in paper or electronic form. In some communities, it's the job of the county clerk to administer marriage licenses. In other communities, the city clerk works mostly with jail and arrest records. Court clerks are responsible for maintaining accurate and complete records of divorces as well as judicial and probate matters.
Clerks maintain tax records, business liens, and real estate tax assessments. Clerks are responsible for making such records available to the public. Many offices maintain their records online, and citizens can directly access these public records for a small fee.
