Our Mission

The County Clerk's Office is an office that touches everyone's life and has since 1848.

We keep and maintain Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage licenses and Assumed Name Certificates. The office also records every real estate and land transaction. In addition, we file and maintain the records of the Commissioners' Court, two County Courts at Law and the courts for Probate, Mental Illness, and Juvenile cases. An efficient, well-run office is vital to the citizens of Kaufman County and the court.

The County Clerk must be a seasoned administrator with expertise in the areas of strategic planning, caseflow management, information systems management, records management, human resource management, program evaluation, financial management and public relations.

We strive to use teamwork, technology and planning to improve our services, increase the accessibility of the records, and prioritize preservation efforts. Since 2000, By focusing on our goals, we are able to tout many firsts, have a long list of accomplishments and have received several awards.
