Michèle B. McQuigg
Clerk of Circuit Court

The Clerk of Circuit Court is a constitutional officer elected every eight (8) years. The Clerk serves the citizens of the County of Prince William and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. The current Clerk of Court Michèle B. McQuigg has served since 2008.

The Office of the Clerk of Circuit Court dates back to the 1700s. From that time to the present, the Clerk's duties have changed significantly, but the office remains vitally important to the citizens of the county and each city.
The Code of Virginia lists more than 800 responsibilities of the Clerk, many of which are complex and challenging. The Clerk serves as the recorder of deeds and probate judge, issues marriage licenses and fictitious names, and is the official court administrator for all civil and criminal court cases. In this latter capacity, the Clerk creates and maintains all court files and records, prepares court orders and jury lists, contacts jurors and issues summons and court processes.
Circuit Court Clerks in Virginia perform duties that in many states are divided among three or four separate offices. Virginia has chosen to combine judicial and administrative functions into a single office--saving citizens significant tax dollars.



The Circuit Court Clerk's Office is open 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Cashier hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except Land Records 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. No payments will be accepted after these hours.
