Duties

Each court has a court clerk's office, which processes all case papers, keeps court records and provides information to the people involved in a case (but only to the extent permitted by law).  Anyone wishing to make a witness appear at a court hearing may request the issuance of a subpoena (a document used to require a person to come to the court hearing) at the Clerk's Office.  While court personnel are not permitted to offer legal assistance, they can provide general procedural information.  Because of confidentiality laws, the Clerk's Office can only provide very limited information about a case and then only to those people involved with the case.
