Harris County Clerk's Office Annex Services

The following services are available at any of our 9 annexes.

Any services not listed below are available at our Downtown office.

Marriage License

A Marriage License Certificate is a government issued document declaring to the world that two people have been authorized by the law of the State to enter the ‘Rites of Matrimony’. Marriage licenses have been around since the Middle Ages and are often required for filing taxes, buying a home and other important life events.

Assumed Names

An Assumed Name or Doing Business As (DBA) is the registering or securing of a company or business name, owner(s) name, and address in which the company or business entity will be located and conducting business. Any individual doing business in Harris County is required to file an Assumed Name reflecting his/her business name and the ownership of the business pursuant to Business and Commerce Code 71.001 . The Harris County Clerk's Office files unincorporated, incorporated and withdrawals of Assumed Names.

Release of Liens

The Release of Liens can be filed in person or by mail in the Real Property Department. The nine annex offices can accept the Release of Liens for filing, however it may take 5 – 7 business days for the recording to be completed based upon delivery of work to the downtown office.

Vital Records

Vital Records (birth and death certificates) are not public records. The requests for these documents can be made by immediate family members (self, parents, grandparents, legal spouse, sibling or children - all with valid identification). For additional help contact the Vital Statistics desk at 713-274-8690.

Military Discharge

DD-214 or Military Discharge Paper is a document that is given to a person that has completed their service in the Armed Forces of the United States. This document contains pertinent information pertaining to their service and discharge from the military.

The DD-214’s can be filed in person or by mail in the Personal Records Department. The nine annex offices can accept them for filing, however it may take 5 – 7 business days to be filed based upon delivery of work to the downtown office.

Public Records

The annexes are able to assist customers with obtaining public records from the Harris County Clerk’s Office such as Real Property (land records), County Civil, Probate, Marriage Licenses, Informal Marriage Licenses, Assumed Names, and other Miscellaneous Personal Records. The annexes are limited to only obtaining the records listed in our computer database. Depending on the date that the record was filed will determine if there is a waiting time for the copy. Any filing that is not on our computer database will have to be obtained through the Public Information Service Department.
