The prothonotary is elected to serve a four-year term as the legal custodial of documents filed with the County Court of Common Pleas and the prothonotary's filing duties are set by Pennsylvania statutes, the Pennsylvania Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Greene County Local Rules of Court. Since the early 1800's, the office of prothonotary has been an elective choice of its citizens. No tax money is used for the payment of the salary of the prothonotary and the entire staff. All surpluses are turned over to the county treasurer for the use of the county government.

A Prothonotary's Duties:
The Prothonotary is the keeper/clerk of the civil records/division for the court. The work of the prothonotary is reviewed and approved by the president judge, or another judge as required. Work is generated from the court and through filings from both attorneys and the general public.
