The Clerk's office is the registrar, recorder, and custodian of all pleadings, instrument, and papers that are part of any cause of action in any District Court in Brazoria County. In addition to judicial responsibilities, the District Clerk indexes and secures all court records, collects filing fees, handles funds held in litigation and monies awarded to minors. Trust Funds currently managed, invested, and monitored by the District Clerk are approaching 14 million dollars.
The Clerk's office is established by the Texas Constitution. Using technology to enhance the services provided by the office, optical imaging has become the primary method of archival of records.
While the new cases filed in Brazoria County District Courts now approaches 8,000 each year, many of the court records of which the Clerk's office has custody are classified as permanent records by law. The District Clerk must continue to maintain these "disposed of" records forever. District Court records for which the District Clerk maintains go back as far as 1832 when Texas was a possession of Mexico. It is not unusual for the District Clerk's office to be asked to locate and reproduce copies of records from 100 years
