TEMPORARY MESSAGE FROM THE COUNTY CLERK:

Dear Community, 

The safety of our customers and especially our staff is first and foremost during this difficult time.   We need to limit our exposure so our employees, as well as you, do not potentially contract Covid-19 virus and render our office completely incapable to process any documents. 

OUR PHONES ARE BEING ANSWERED FROM 10 AM TO 2 PM until we reopen.

Our office will reopen to the public on June 8, 2020.  Until we reopen we are still processing mail for any documents that can't be e-recorded as well as e-recorded documents (land records) along with any emergency Supreme/County filings.  Any other services are temporarily postponed such as passports processing, NYS Thruway E-ZPass sales and hunting/fishing licenses.  We are processing DBA's, certification of documents, Apostiles and Notary renewals as well by mail. 

Please note if you need a copy of a document and it cannot be purchased through our online search, then email me (LisaDell@ongov.net) directly or send a request by mail.  We have very limited staffing and we will try to accommodate your requests as soon as we can.  

Divorce records are confidential.  To obtain a copy, you have to be the party of record or attorney of record.  I cannot accept email requests for copies of divorce records.  You need to send a notarized request by mail to include both party's names, the approximate year, and a check or money order payable to Onondaga County Clerk for $7.50. 

Our e-recording volume has gone up dramatically.  Thank you all for participating in this process so we can try to keep your business going through this very challenging time. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and everything is always subject to change,

Lisa Dell
