Obtain Copies of Documents

Depending on your needs, you can choose from several different copy services.

Documents Online – We have a significant number of documents that are available online. Copies of online documents printed using your computer are free. These copies will bear an “unofficial copy” watermark.

Electronic Documents Sent by Email – These are uncertified documents that a clerk sends to the customer via email. These copies can be requested by phone, email, or in person. If the documents are in our electronic library, the cost for this service is $1.00 per document. If the documents are on microfilm or paper, the cost is $1.00 per page.

Self Service Copies – These are copies made at our office from electronic images, microfilm, or paper. Copies made on the photocopier are 20 cents per page. Copies made from microfilm printers or computer printers are 25 cents per page.

Copies made by Clerk – These are documents that are made at our office by a clerk. These copies can be requested by phone, email, or in person. The cost for this service is $1.00 per page.

Certified Copies – This is when the Clerk makes the copy and places a stamp on it to certify that it is an accurate and complete reproduction of the original document. Certified copies may be requested by phone, email, or in person. There is a $5.00 per document charge for the certification service plus an additional cost of $1.00 per page.

To request copies, call (512) 854-9188 or email your request to the division that will have the record you are requesting. Please be as specific as possible (full name, cause number, etc). If you are planning to pay with a credit card, please include your phone number so a cashier may contact you for payment information. Please do not send your credit card number in an email.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. A transaction fee applies to credit card payments: $3.00 for transactions less than $100.00 or 3% for transactions of $100.00 or more.
