The Clerk of Courts office plays a vital role in its service to the courts as the "Record Keeper" for the courts. The Clerk's offices are required to accept filings, perform docketing and indexing functions and preserve the official records of the courts.

Cases handled at the common pleas level are felony criminal matters, domestic relations, and large civil matters. The Clerk of Courts issues many documents in the carrying out of court orders. These range from a simple subpoena to the death warrant in a capital case.

In several counties, the Clerk of Courts for the common pleas court is also the Clerk for the municipal and county courts.
