Clerk's Corner

Welcome to the Wayne County Clerk's Office

Hello, I am Wayne County Clerk Cathy M. Garrett!

As your Wayne County Clerk, I have consistently worked hard to deliver convenient services to the hardworking residents of Wayne County, MI.

My office is directly responsible for the issuance of birth and death records, as well as marriage and CCW licenses. We also register assumed names and process notary applications.

Because I am the Clerk of the largest Circuit Court in the State of Michigan, my office maintains court records for three areas of the Third Judicial Circuit Court, including civil, criminal and family/juvenile cases. I am also responsible for various elections held throughout Wayne County for federal, state and county offices.

In order to better serve Wayne County residents, I have successfully launched TWO Satellite Offices - the Western Wayne Office in Westland, MI and the Northville Township Office in Northville, MI. These locations, as well as our main downtown office, expertly work to service your personal and business needs.

With that being said, I would like you to know that I am wholly committed to enhancing your experiences with our office through friendly and cooperative customer service and the use of enhanced technology.

Should you experience anything less than the service you deserve, please feel free to call my Customer Service Hotline at (313) 224.6262.

Thank you!
