What does a County Clerk do?

Few of you will go through life without calling on the County Clerk for copies of birth certificates and marriage licenses, deeds to homes and other property as well as oil and gas lease records, death certificates, powers of attorney, passport applications and a multitude of other personal and business documents.

Beyond recording life’s major events and transactions in Texas’ third most populous county, the County Clerk provides administrative support for 15 courts, maintaining records for criminal and civil cases as well as files for probated estates.
