Search Services

The Clerk of Court is pleased to announce an expansion in the online services we offer.

 

Effective April 27th, our office has joined the Louisiana Clerks Remote Access Authority ("LCRAA"). This statewide portal provides secure remote internet access to land records maintained by participating parishes in Louisiana. At present, there are more than 45 parishes participating. The LCRAA portal allows users to search Land Record Indexes of multiple parishes simultaneously, and signifies a significant leap forward in the efforts to search online records.

 

In addition, the Calcasieu Clerk’s office has made a substantial investment in increasing the scope of local services offered online, including criminal minutes and plats.

 

Due to the Day Rate pricing requirements of the LCRAA portal as well as the increased investment by our office, our ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION FEES WERE INCREASED effective May 15th, 2016. Even with these increases, you will find our fees remain competitive with the fees charged by other Clerk's offices from around the state.

 

Please note that our online customers will still be able to select the search options that best suit their search needs, and this will help minimize cost. Many other parishes have an all inclusive single search fee that also includes an additional set up fee, but at present, we will continue to offer reasonable options without a setup fee.

 

Online accounts are purchased using credit cards through our website. Customers are reminded that documents are always available for viewing at no charge in our office, and in-office copies continue to have minimal cost.
