Adoption/Juvenile Processing

Phone: (225) 389-4914


The adoption suits handled by this department are confidential records according to state law, and the public does not have access to them. While this department cannot reveal information on adoption suits filed, they can refer you to an agency that may be able to provide further information.

This department works closely with the two Juvenile Court Judges and a Hearing Officer at Juvenile Court, the District Attorney's Office, other state agencies and attorneys in filing and processing juvenile pleadings. Suits processed through this department include:

  • Adoptions/Surrenders
  • Petitions for Disclosure
  • Voluntary Transfers of Custody
  • Terminations of Parental Rights
  • UIFSAs (Uniform Intrastate Foreign Support Act)

It has come to our attention someone has been calling residences of East Baton Rouge claiming to be with the Clerk of Court’s office and asking for Social Security Numbers. Please be assured that it is not the Clerk’s office making these phone calls – we do not make such inquiry calls and will never ask for your Social Security Number.


The Elections Department is actively seeking new commissioners to work precincts around the parish. Classes will be held in late July. Download the general informational brochure here and call (225) 295-4765 for more information about the upcoming classes.
