Welcome to the DeKalb County Circuit Clerk's Website. I am proud to have served the people of DeKalb County since 1984 as Circuit Clerk. The Circuit Clerk position is an elected one, voted on by the people of DeKalb County. It is a Constitutional office and part of the 23rd Judicial Branch of Illinois, including Kendall County. Our office is located in the historical DeKalb County Courthouse located in the heart of down town Sycamore
The Circuit Clerk is the official record keeper of the Court. All Civil, Probate, Traffic, Criminal and Juvenile cases are filed through our office. A deputy clerk attends all court proceedings and keeps a record of all happenings. This is the only way through which the files reach the court. We also collect and disperse all monies ordered to be paid by the court.
If you are visiting our website looking to answer a question we hope you will find it. If not, please do not hesitate to contact my office and speak with a clerk. I hope you will check back often to see "WHAT'S HAPPENING" and keep up on the latest events at the courthouse and around the community. As always it is my pleasure to serve as Circuit Clerk of DeKalb County.
