Circuit Court

Welcome to the Henry County Circuit Court Clerk's Office website. I am Jennifer Ashworth, Clerk of Henry County. I have served the citizens of Henry County since 1989, first as a Deputy Clerk and now as Clerk since January 1, 2016. I have lived in this great county my entire life. My husband, Kevin, and I live in Spencer.

The Code of Virginia mandates more than 800 duties for the Clerk of the Circuit Court which means my office offers a wide variety of services to the citizens of Henry County. Some of those services include the issuance of marriage licenses, recording of deeds and land documents, coordinating juror services for jury trials, probate of wills and estates, assisting Judges with courtroom proceedings, creating and managing all court files and legal documents, issuing summons and court processes, preserving historic court papers and many other services.
