Mission Statement

Each county of South Carolina has a popularly elected clerk of court who serves a four - year term. The clerk of court serves both the Circuit and Family Court as they operate in each county. The clerks of court are charged with docket management; receiving fees, fines, and cost; maintaining all court records; and handling reporting requirements. In the Circuit Court, their duties encompass both civil and criminal areas: receiving criminal trial lists; handling jury-related matters; performing courtroom duties. In the Family Courts, the clerks of court are responsible for receiving and disbursing support payments paid through the clerk of court; issuing Rules to Show Cause to bring non-paying obligors before the Family Court.
All funding of clerks of court for staff, office space, and equipment is a county responsibility, with the exception of a limited state salary and support personnel supplement.

The clerk may serve as the Register of Mesne Conveyances and thus keep all records required by the recording statutes.
