Introduction

The Parish of Acadia was created in the year 1887 and the Clerk of Court has records since the creation of the Parish

These records are kept here in the Acadia Parish Courthouse. The Clerk of Court’s Office maintains confirmation records of old Spanish Grants to the first Acadian settlers who came to this section of the country.

These grants were later recognized by the United States Government. All records of marriages, wills, land, civil, and criminal law suits and the settlement thereof, are among the records maintained by this office. Their accuracy and availability provide the basis of every transaction, as well as oil, gas, and mineral rights.

In addition, the Clerk of Court’s Office handles all elections in the Parish, issues marriage licenses, passports, and mortgage certificates and serves as record keeper for the court system.

This office leads the way in modern technology. Documents are now being scanned and electronically indexed in chronological order for rapid research and retrieval. With advances in technology, information filing and processing is done within minutes instead of days. With all this in mind, this makes for a tremendous cost savings to you and for us.

All salaries and running expenses of the office are paid out of the fees, as fixed by statute, collected for recordings, certified copies and services rendered in connection with civil probate, and criminal proceedings. No tax money is provided for the operation of the office except for the purchase of some office equipment.

Our office strives on customer satisfaction, therefore, your feedback and comments are more than welcome. We hope this site provides you with the knowledge and information about our office and services that we provide to the general public.
