Hardin County Clerk of District Court


In each of Iowa's 99 counties, a clerk of district court office manages and maintains all trial records filed in the county. Clerks of court have hundreds of administrative duties, some of which include:

  • Accepting and processing fines, fees, and court costs owed to the state, child support checks, and civil judgments owed to the litigants.

  • Maintaining a record of liens on real estate.

  • Disposing of scheduled violations that are not contested and do not require a court hearing.

  • Notifying state and local government agencies, including law enforcement agencies, of court orders.

The Hardin County Clerk of Court is not a county office, but is a part of the Judicial Branch in the state government of Iowa.
