Welcome to the St. Charles Parish Clerk of Court’s Website. Since taking office, a major accomplishment has been the installation of new and up-to-date computerized hardware and software systems. I was able to accomplish this huge task in my first year of office with only fees received for services rendered, and zero tax dollars from the public. I am continuously striving to improve and meet the growing needs of the St. Charles Parish community.
We have created a state of the art website with various portals to meet the needs of all users. We will continue to usher “your” Clerk of Court’s Office into the digital age. As always, your suggestions and advice are welcome to help us achieve these goals.
