Cherokee County Clerk of Courts
The Mission of the Cherokee County Clerk’s office is to maintain and safeguard all documents appropriately presented for recording. We strive to provide quality customer service in a non-partisan and professional manner while affording dignity and respect to every individual.
THE CLERK’S OFFICE CAN NOW ACCEPT LEAVES OF ABSENCE VIA THE E-FILING SYSTEM FOR SUPERIOR, STATE, AND JUVENILE COURTS.
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 email@example.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.
If you need to obtain a copy of a document filed in Superior, State or Magistrate court, first determine the type of copy you require. Georgia law determines the cost charged for copies, the Clerk of Court's office can not waive these fees. We have a statutory obligation to collect fees for copies.
