The Clerk of Court is not permitted to, and does not, render title opinions. In Louisiana, only an attorney can render a title opinion. The Clerk's office also cannot provide legal advice; however, the deputy clerks of our various departments are happy to assist with researching the public records in the Clerk of Court's care.
There is no charge for assistance by our staff. However, there is a charge of $1 per page for copies made.
As a courtesy to the attorneys who frequent the office in the normal course of their business, the Clerk has also set aside a separate area commonly referred to as The Bar Association Section. This area has a complete work station along with a printer for their use.
