  • This office is not required to search the Official Public Records. If you are looking for a document that has been filed then you can search online at countygovernmentrecords.com yourself. You will need to go to TEXAS, then click on TEXAS SEARCH PORTAL. At this point you will need to set up a Username and Password, there is no fee to do this. Once you have your Username and Password then you can look for OCHILTREE COUNTY. Currently all of the Ochiltree County Records are scanned into the website, but they are only fully index back to July 1974, before that date you will need to know the Volume and Page of the document you need.

    The best way to search is to go to BOTH NAMES and put in one of the last names of one of the people in the document. The images will be distorted, but they should not be distorted to the point that you cannot identify if the document you are looking at is the one you are needing. Once you locate the document you can put it into a shopping cart just like you would if you were shopping at any online store. When you cash out the charge will be $1.00 per page, just like it would be if you were getting it direct from the office. Once you purchase the document there will be no distortion. 

    If you need a certified copy of the document you will have to contact the clerk's office. Be sure to get the document number and/or the volume and page of the document as we will ask you to provide us with that information. The certification will add an additional $5.00 to the $1.00 per page of the document you need. So if your document is 5 pages and you need it certified the cost will be $10.00. 

    If you need assistance with the website, please do not hesitate to call the office for assistance.
