CLERK OF GWINNETT SUPERIOR COURT NEEDS VETERANS TO REGISTER
Veterans Day is an official United States Federal holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans.
The Gwinnett County Clerk of Superior Court Richard T. Alexander, Jr., is asking all veterans of all military branches of service to make sure their DD-214 is recorded at the courthouse. Your DD-214 should have been recorded at the time of the service member’s discharge from the military.
Alexander stated, “I have discovered that many veterans do not know about this service and did not have their DD-214 recorded. Although veterans may have recorded their DD-214 in their home town or in a county or another state far away from Gwinnett, you are encouraged to record them here as well. If your DD-214 has been recorded somewhere else and you are now living in Gwinnett County, simply bring your DD-214 to the Clerk of Superior Court’s Office Deed Room located at 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30046 and we will record it in our records. If there comes a time you need a certified copy, then we will be able to provide one for you and it will not be necessary to send to another county or state to obtain your record. This is a free service to all veterans that my office is delighted to offer.”
DD-214 is issued by the Department of Defense when a person is discharged by the military.
PROOF OF JUDGMENT REQUIRED FOR ALL GARNISHMENT AFFIDAVITS
Effective May 1, 2014, it is the standing order of the Gwinnett County Magistrate Court that a plaintiff filing a garnishment action must file proof of an active judgment against the defendant along with the garnishment affidavit. Proof of judgment shall include active writs of fieri facias.

NOTICE TO THE BAR
Recently there has been a trend by some members of the Bar to use more than one address for legal counsel on cases filed in the Gwinnett Judicial Circuit. All deputy clerks in the Clerk’s office are trained to check the attorney’s address on each and every case or pleading filed. When a new address appears that is different than our database address the attorney’s address is changed. Changing the address in the database will in turn change all cases pending for that attorney, as the case management system attorneys’ database is not case specific. Unfortunately by using a different address on a succession of cases the attorney will not receive notices in other pending cases. In other words, the new address will be the address of record for all cases.
NOTICE OF JURY SCAM
The public should be aware of a scam that is occurring across the nation. You may receive a telephone call or text message notifying you that you have missed jury duty and that you should immediately call the telephone number provided. The text further directs the recipient to call the number to pay a fine. THIS COMMUNICATION IS A BOGUS NOTICE.
No one affiliated with the Gwinnett Judicial Circuit Clerk of Superior Court’s office nor the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office staffs send text or email messages to jurors of this nature. We would contact jurors via telephone but, when we do, the respective staff member will identify themselves. Our automatic telephonic messaging system provides notices to jurors concerning status of cases and appearances. If you are asked to call the office, the telephone number provided will be the main Gwinnett County switchboard number 770-822-8000.
