Clerk of Court
and Ex-Officio Recorder
Thank you for visiting our new web site for The Clerk of Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans. We have recently updated our site in order to provide you with important information regarding the two divisions of our office: The Civil Division and The Land Records Division. We hope that you will find navigating through this new site easy and informative.

This is an exciting time for the Clerk's Office and its customers. We have implemented our new unified indexing system with a scanning platform in the Land Records Division. Later this year, we will implement a new Civil Division case management system with an e-filing component.

My staff and I continue to move forward with the modernization of the Clerk's Office. We look forward to continuing to serve you. We are One Office, One Team, Committed to Public Service.

Effective Wednesday, March 12, 2014, the new Land Records Index is comprised of the following:

1) The Mortgage Index which covers September 21, 1987 through February 14, 2014;
2) The Conveyance Index which covers January 1, 1989 through February 14, 2014; and
3) The Unified Indexing System Index which covers February 18, 2014 forward.

The above indices are available online remotely and in the Clerk's office.

Images for the above indices are available through the Unified Indexing System from January 1, 2005 forward. The images prior to February 18, 2014 can be searched by instrument number (or the former notarial archives number), mortgage instrument number (MIN), or conveyance instrument number (CIN). The search results for these images will only show the instrument number (or former notarial archives number).

Thank you for your input and support regarding the new Land Records Unified Indexing System. As a result of your input, we continue to make changes and improvements to the system. We welcome your ongoing suggestions.
