Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and in efforts to make all filing more efficient, the Clerk’s Office has worked diligently to be able to accept as much filing as possible electronically. Fortunately, Leaves of Absence have now been added to what can be accepted.

Please follow these instructions to file your Leaves electronically. Go to www.efileGA.com and select Cherokee Superior Court, regardless of whether you are filing in State Court or Juvenile Court. For your case number, please enter your BAR NUMBER. The Clerk’s Office has set up accounts for all attorneys that have filed Leaves of Absence in recent years by the attorney’s bar number.

Do not forget to add all appropriate parties as service contacts that need to be served copies of your Leave of Absence. Please also choose a WAIVER ACCOUNT under Payment Accounts, so no fee is assessed as per O.C.G.A. § 15-6-11.

If you receive an error saying the case does not exist, please contact us at loa@cherokeega.com so your account can be added. Do not file the LOA into the individual case, as the notices need to be kept in a chronological file per USCR 16. If you have questions or need help filing, do not hesitate to contact the Clerk’s Office at 678-493-6511.


Board Of Equalization

The BOE is a division of the Superior Court Clerk and is comprised of three members who own property and live in Cherokee County.

They are appointed by the Grand Jury and take an Oath of Office to faithfully and impartially discharge the duties involved in hearing appeals and rendering a decision.

Grand Jury Presentments

A presentment is a charge the grand jury brings on its own initiative. In contrast, an indictment is almost always first drawn up by a prosecutor and then submitted to the grand jury for approval. In federal courts, a presentment cannot by itself initiate a prosecution.



Finally, attorneys and paralegals can search case information from 18 Georgia counties at once!
