The Superior Court Clerk's Office was established by the 1947 New Jersey State Constitution (Art. VI, Section 7, Paragraph 3). It is a statewide clerk’s office for the trial courts. The trial courts operate at the local level, either county or vicinage (which is a court management region consisting of one or more counties), under the direct local supervision of a Deputy Clerk of Superior Court.
In the central office, the Superior Court Clerk is responsible for foreclosure case processing, statewide judgment processing, managing electronic access to court records stored in the Judiciary's case management database, the Bail Surety Program, and records management.
