 Upon a COVID-19 breakout within the Ogle County State’s Attorney’s Office and the Ogle County Probation Office, Ogle County Health Director Kyle Auman is recommending a two (2) week pause of operation of the Ogle County Judicial Center to ensure we control the spread and that the public is not exposed to the virus by Ogle County/Court employees.

All cases falling within that time frame will be notified of a future court date.  The Ogle County Judicial Center will reopen on Monday, December 7, 2020 at 8:30 a.m.

Limited staff will be available for criminal bond hearings, emergency matters regarding emergency petitions for order of protection, emergency orders for stalking/no contact, emergency juvenile matters and bonafide emergency child support and parenting time/decision making disputes.  Determination of a bonafide emergency child support or parenting time/decision making dispute issue shall be determined by the Judge before whom the case is pending.

 The Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court is a Constitutional Office. While the Clerk is elected on a county wide basis, it is not a county office as defined by the Illinois Constitution. It is a non-judicial office of the judicial branch of state government. The duties are set forth by statute, Rules of the Supreme Court and Local Circuit Court Rules.

The Clerk is required to attend all sessions of court, keep and preserve all records and files of the court, issue process as required by law, and is the Keeper of the Seal of the Court.
