Unlike most other states, original documents sent to the Clerk of the District Court and Ex-Officio Recorder are not returned to the sender. Section 2742 of the Louisiana Civil Code provides that documents deposited with the recorder become part of the parish archives. The filing party may obtain certified copies of the original documents with the Clerk’s endorsement at the time of filing from the Recording Department, after filing, the copies may be obtained from the Research Department.
A Recording Department fee schedule has been posted in the “Fees & Links” page. For further information about the Recording Department, please call (337)788-8881.
