Hello and thank you for visiting our website. The Clerk-Recorder Department’s dedicated employees perform a wide range of services including recordation of real property transactions, issuing marriage licenses, performing civil marriage ceremonies, issuing birth, death, and marriage certificates, maintaining registration of notaries, and processing applications for fictitious business names and passports.

Our staff is committed to providing a consistently high level of public service. We strive to run our office in a cost-effective manner and use automated processes and digital image technology to make it easier for the public and business community to access our records. We have worked hard to keep our services accessible to the public and are proud to have the lowest real property document recording fees, one of the lowest costs for a civil marriage ceremony and for passport photos in the state. 

This website provides you with details about our services and the addresses to all our office locations in the cities of Anaheim, Laguna Hills, and Santa Ana.
