Chapter 36 of the Government Code requires the clerk of each court in the state to prepare a report every month on court appointments made and any fees approved/paid for an attorney ad litem, competency evaluator, guardian, guardian ad litem, or mediator, with a few exceptions. 

The Texas Constitution, Article 5, Section 9 – “There shall be a Clerk for the District Court of each county, who shall be elected by the qualified voters and who shall hold his office for four years.”

The District Clerk provides support for the district courts, is the custodian of all court pleadings and papers that are part of any cause of action, civil or criminal, in all courts served by the Clerk. The District Clerk’s duties also include indexing and securing all court records, collecting filing fees, handling funds held in litigation and money awarded to minors, and is the jury manager for the county.

Self Help Through EFile


 



Jury Notices are posted on the Public Notices Page.

Notice:
Effective March 1, 2018 the district clerk’s office will be going paperless. This means paper case files will no longer be available for viewing.

We offer two methods of viewing cases. The Online Court Records will direct you to Chambers County – Portal where you can register to view case records and purchase available documents. Or you can come to either of the District Clerk locations, located at the Anahuac Courthouse and West Annex, to view records on our public access terminals.

Pursuant to the Texas Rules of Civil Procedures-Rule 21(F) (13), “Official Record. The clerk may designate an electrically filed document or a scanned paper document as the official court record. The clerk is not required to keep both paper and electronic versions of the same document unless otherwise required by local rule.”

We are excited to offer these services. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact our office for assistance.

The Chambers County District Clerk’s office is a designated Passport Acceptance Agency. 

You can complete the passport application and bring it in or fill one out in our office.  We can take a picture for you (an additional cost of $10.00) and complete the application process in the office.   

Costs are as follows:

Adult passport book - $110.00, adult passport card - $30.00,

Children under 16 - book - $80.00, children under 16 - card - $15.00, children must be present .

Both payable to the U.S. Department of State by check or money order.

In addition, an execution fee of $35.00 per person payable to Chambers County by any means.

If you were born in Chambers County and you do not have your birth certificate you can purchase one down stairs in the County Clerk’s office.  The courthouse is a one stop shop!

We take passport applications Monday through Friday 8am to 11am and 1pm to 4pm in the Chambers County Courthouse.  Services are also offered in the West Annex by appointment, call 409-267-2604.  Please no hats, shirts with logos, or white shirts allowed for the passport photo.

Purchase either a passport book or a card.  I recommend you purchase both.  It is good to keep the book in the safe of your cruise ship or hotel when leaving the country.  You carry your card with you for proof of citizenship.  That way, if your wallet or purse is stolen you still have your book to get back into the country.  If you take a cruise and you have an emergency and have to fly back, you cannot fly without the book.

For specifics questions about travel, to download the application ahead of time or to view the costs to purchase a book and a card, see the link below to the U.S. Department of State:
