Civil Appeals

Phone: (225) 389-4751


The Civil Appeals Department is responsible for preparing the appellate records for all Civil, Probate, Family and Juvenile records appealed from the 19th Judicial District Court, the Family Court of East Baton Rouge and the Juvenile Court of East Baton Rouge Parish to a higher court.

Once the order granting an appeal is signed by the judge and the necessary costs are paid by the Appellant, the return date is set. This department works closely with the judges' offices and attorneys to prepare the appellate records.

In addition to working on the appellate records, the department is also responsible for the transfer of suits from the 19th Judicial District Court to other parishes once the costs have been paid.

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.
