Juvenile Clerk Of Courts
The Judge of the Juvenile Court acts as his own Clerk of Courts. This means that the Judge assumes responsibility for the filing of complaints and other pleadings, as well as collection of court costs and fines. The Clerk’s Office also operates the Juvenile Traffic Bureau, which permits a juvenile to waive appearance in court on certain enumerated offenses upon entering a written admission and payment of fines.
In addition to overseeing the filing of documents with the Court, the Clerk’s Office collects data in order to report to the Supreme Court of Ohio regarding the Court’s docket and other activities. Further, the Clerk’s Office is responsible for scheduling all court hearings, and must ensure that matters are disposed of in certain time periods in compliance with the Rules of Superintendence adopted by the Supreme Court of the State of Ohio and the laws of the State.
