Advice on Legal Matters

The Travis County Clerk’s Office is happy to help you file documents or locate records, but please understand that we cannot answer questions about legal, tax, or business matters. These issues are frequently complicated and it is in your best interest to get professional advice. Additionally, legal matters, specifically, often require the assistance of an attorney, and the law prevents us from providing legal advice to any person. If you have questions about legal, tax, or business matters, please consider contacting the professional of your choice, and understand that the County Clerk’s Office cannot answer questions in these areas.

If you need assistance in finding legal services, please see our list of Legal Resources.

The Travis County Clerk maintains the county's records, administers elections, and oversees legal documentation (such as property deeds, marriage licenses and assumed name certificates).
