Open Records Request

Before requesting a record, please note that you can search our free online database for land records, notice of foreclosures, public notices, liens, assumed names, vital records, marriage licenses, Commissioners Court minutes and more. You may view documents and print uncertified copies from your own computer.

Bexar County has a new open records portal that allows requestors to submit a request online and check on the status of the request. Users may create an account, which is needed to track and receive information related to the request. Additionally, the public can access past requests and may find that the information they are seeking is already available. To submit a request within the portal, please visit the Bexar County Public Information Act Request Center.

Please include the following in your written request: first & last name, contact info (mailing address, phone number or email), and a specific description of the information or documents you are requesting. Information that will help identify the records includes names, types of records, dates, case numbers, etc. Please contact the County Clerk’s Office at (210) 335-2561 if you have any questions regarding the open records request process.
