DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CLERK OF COURT

In Louisiana, your Clerk of Court fulfills many functions.  Under the Louisiana Constitution, the
Clerk of Court is Clerk of the District Court for their respective parish and, at the same time is
the Ex-Officio Recorder of Deeds, Mortgages, and other legal instruments.  In addition, the Clerk is
also the Chief Elections Officer and Custodian of voting machines for the Parish.

The Clerk also has the responsibility of notifying the Commissioners and Deputy Parish Custodians
of their duties and responsibilities on Election Day and overseeing the delivery of all
voting
machines to their respective precincts.  After an election, the Clerk of Court is required by
law to
open each voting machine used in an election, record the number of votes, reseal the
machines
and report the totals to the Parish Board of Election Supervisors.

Functioning as the Clerk of Court, she receives and files all pleadings, such as Petitions, Answers,
Rules and Exceptions in Civil matters as well as Indictments, Bills of Information, certain Juvenile
matters and other filings in Criminal matters.

As the Ex-Officio Recorder of Deeds, Mortgages and other legal instruments, the Clerk's Office
files,records, and indexes all Conveyances, Mortgages and other various documents to be
recorded in the Public Records of the Parish.  Another function is the issuance of marriage licenses, certified birth certificates, and passports.

No tax money is provided for the operation of the office except for residence, utilities, and
some 
modifications.  The fees collected for recordings, certified copies, and services rendered in
connection with civil, probate, and criminal proceedings are established by statute.  All salaries and
expenses of the office are paid out of these fees collected.  This makes the Clerk of Court’s
Office
entirely self-supporting.
