Clerk’s response to COVID-19

 The health, safety and well-being of my staff and our county residents is my first priority.  In response to the threat of the Coronavirus, all three offices of the Delaware County Clerk of Courts are closed to walk-in business until further notice.  Both Legal and Title Divisions are half-staffed as follows:    

Legal Division at the Courthouse – Closed until further notice but half-staffed to answer your calls, emails and to process the filings of Common Pleas Court.                         

Title Division – Delaware location: Closed with no staff on site.   

                         Lewis Center location:  Closed, but half-staffed for title work by mail/courier, 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only                                                                             

If you need the services of the Clerk’s office, I encourage you to use online or telephone access in conducting business in our Legal Division.  Attorneys and pro-se parties are asked to please file documents through our e-filing system.  Registration is easy and can be done through this website.  If you need assistance, we’ll be happy to help.  Please note, case filings may not be emailed and will not be accepted.  Attorneys, if you have a mailbox in the Clerk’s office, you are welcome to give us a call to have your mailbox contents scanned and emailed to you.  We will not be accepting passport applications until further notice.   

Additional information regarding the operations of the General Division and Domestic Relation Division of Common Pleas Court can be found at this link

If you need the services of the Title Division, please contact the Lewis Center office and we will be happy to assist you to process your title work by mail.

As the COVID-19 circumstances continue to change, we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff members and our community.  We ask for your patience, flexibility and understanding as we continue to serve you the best we can.         



Welcome to the Delaware County Clerk of Courts

I am proud to provide this site as a public service to our legal community and the residents of Delaware County. It is my honor and privilege to serve as your Clerk of Common Pleas Court.

This site allows you to search information in our Legal Division about appellate, civil, domestic relations and felony criminal cases, including case dockets, court schedules and documents that have been filed in the Clerk of Court’s office for the Delaware County Common Pleas Court and Fifth District Court of Appeals.  The Legal Division is located in the new Delaware County Courthouse in the heart of downtown Delaware.

The Title Division of the Clerk of Courts office serves the residents of Delaware and other Ohio counties by issuing Ohio Certificates of Title for ownership transfers and all other title transactions for automobiles, watercraft and recreational vehicles. For your convenience, there are two offices of our Title Division; one in Delaware and one in Lewis Center.

This site also offers an extensive list of forms for both the Legal Division and Title Division of the Clerk of Court’s office.

Feel free to contact any of the offices of the Clerk of Courts for further information or to answer any questions you may have. We will be happy to serve you.

Natalie Fravel

I was first elected to office as Delaware County Clerk of Common Pleas Court in 2016 after working in the Clerk’s offices for over fourteen years.  My main responsibilities were in the Clerk’s Title Division and serving the customers and dealerships of the Satellite Title Office in Lewis Center.  Since taking office, I have become an active member of the Ohio Clerk of Courts Association.  I have also volunteered for over 35 years in many capacities for my church and community organizations.  I was born and raised here in Delaware County.  I graduated from Delaware Hayes High School and Ohio Wesleyan University.  I am proud to serve my hometown community as Clerk of Common Pleas Court.
