Registry of the Court

Phone: (225) 389-5120

The Registry of the Court fund is maintained by the Clerk of Court's Office. The funds deposited into the Registry are accrued from various court-ordered proceedings to be held in interest-bearing accounts until they are disbursed by an order of the court.

Examples of deposited funds include probates and tutorship proceedings, expropriation cases, concursus matters, cash bonds and jury bonds. Several other court actions may also find funds being ordered for deposit into the Registry.

A Certified Copy of a signed Order of Judgment must accompany any deposits to or withdrawals from the Registry of the Court.

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.
