We are happy to announce that our office has resumed all services, including passport acceptance and birth and death certificate issuance! However, ONLY the individual(s) needing service are allowed in our facility, and we ask that visitors wear masks. Our employees are required by gubernatorial decree to wear masks when greeting the public. Patrons also will be required to observe 6-foot radius from others. Please do not bring children or others not needed for the service you are seeking. Individuals not needed for the transaction will be asked to leave the building.
The clerk of court will continue to take steps in order to comply with federal, state, and local guidance to protect the health and safety of our staff and public. We suggest that customers electronically file court documents (civil) through our Odyssey eFileLA program: www.efile-la.com or fax filing. E-recording also is available: see the eRecording page of this site for details of this convenient service.
The April 4 election was rescheduled to July 11. More information will be forthcoming shortly.
Our mailing address for all documents is P.O. Box 40, Belle Chasse, LA 70037. Main Line: 504-934-6610 Fax: 504-934-6629
Our office is pleased to provide this website to help both individuals and businesses obtain information and conduct business. We welcome your suggestions and comments for improvements.
