Re-Opening Offices

In an effort to serve the public, the Ashland County Clerk of Courts has installed physical (germ) barriers in both offices. The barriers are in place and our doors are open to the public with cautious restrictions.

Title Office:

We permit two customers in the office at a time. A deputy clerk will monitor personal distancing in the hallway while wearing mask and gloves. She will perform "Title Triage" for title customers, assessing their paperwork so they don't wait in vain.

We have areas marked for four waiting customers in the hallway and others will be asked to wait outside (weather permitting) or in their car. We are also offering appointments for those who prefer it.

Legal Office:

We will permit two customers and up to two title searchers in the office at one time.

We will continue to accept legal filings by email since we are working with our software vendor to go live with e-filing in coming weeks. To file pleadings, please use:

As yet, we are not accepting passport applications but the U.S. Passport agency is not receiving them either.

Effective March 17, 2020

Until further notice, the Clerk of Courts offices are not accepting passport applications.

We apologize for this inconvenience.
