Jefferson County Clerk, Jacki Shadle, and her clerks are pleased to announce that the Clerk’s office will begin accepting credit cards and electronic checks as a form of payment on April 10, 2017. The payments will be processed by Point & Pay, one of the fastest–growing companies in the convenience pay industry.

Users will pay a convenience fee of 2.5% ($2.00 minimum convenience fee) on credit card payments and a $3.00 convenience fee on e-checks up to $10,000.  It will appear as two separate payment transactions: one for the purchase and a second for the convenience fee.

We are able to accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.

 

Sample Credit Card Transaction:

$56 Marriage License + $2.00 Convenience Fee = $58 Transaction Total

Vital Statistics

You may request copies of birth, marriage or death records. As West Virginia is not an open records state, restrictions apply on who may make requests. Birth records become public record after 100 years and death and marriage records are public after 50 years.

General information is provided in a friendly and ready-to-assist manner. If our office cannot provide the information you seek, we will do our best to point you in the right direction. The County Clerk has a staff consisting of 14 professional clerks who are cross-trained to ensure the Clerk’s commitment to providing top-notch service to our community.
