Every department in the Clerk’s office, except for purchasing, is on a cash control system. Each time a document is recorded, a copy is made, a marriage license is issued, or a mortgage certificate is completed, it is then recorded in our computer system and the account or invoice is updated.
The accounting department also maintains the Registry of the Court accounts. It is in these accounts that “disputed money” is placed pending the outcome of the trial. The money in these accounts is only accessible by court order, therefore, money cannot be placed into nor withdrawn from a Registry account without an order of the Court signed by a District Judge.
Setting Up Your Charge Account
The Acadia Parish Clerk of Court also has general accounts receivable and payable. As a courtesy, the Acadia Parish Clerk of Court may allow you to establish a “charge account”. If you wish to establish an account with us, please contact our office for information and approval. Just as any private company may have, the accounting department oversees the collection of the house charge accounts, as wells as the payments of the accounts payable.
You can reach our Accounting department at (337)788-8881 Ext. 5004.
Civil Suit Accounting
We accept check, cash, cashier’s check, or money order. If paying by credit card, there is a 4% transaction fee for processing. Checks or money order can be made out to Acadia Parish Clerk of Court, or APCOC. They may be mailed to: P.O Box 922, Crowley, LA 70527 (Please put your suit/docket number in the memo section).
You can reach our Civil Suit Accounting department at (337)788-8881 Ext. 5006.
