Clerk of Circuit Court


The Clerk of Court's office is statutorily mandated to provide recordkeeping and collect all fees, fines, and forfeitures for the judicial system.  The office is headed by the Clerk of Court, a county elected position.  Until 1978 when the court system reorganized, the Clerk of Court's office provided administrative services for both the county court and circuit court.  Wisconsin is now under a single trial court system.


The Clerk of Court's office provides administrative support services for all branches of the Barron County Circuit Court including recordkeeping for all court cases, collecting money on court ordered obligations, and managing the court's jury system.  We also assist the public in accessing the courts and its records.  As representatives of the judicial system, Clerk of Court's staff treat those we help and serve with dignity, fairness and sensitivity.


Jury service; deferred payment plans; procedures for unpaid fines; Community Service programs, education for divorcing parents and underage drinking programs; the Circuit Court Automation Program, and the court system in general.
