Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting sign with scissors

Orange County Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen is proud to announce the grand opening of the expanded South County Branch Office in Laguna Hills on May 25, 2022. The office of the Clerk-Recorder will be conducting a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 10:30 a.m. in the Laguna Hills Civic Center located at 24031 El Toro Road, Suite 160, in Laguna Hills. Several civic leaders plan to attend, and the public is invited.

“After 16 years of serving a growing South County community, the South County branch office has become extremely popular for marriage licenses, ceremonies, and real property recordings” said Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen. “This expansion suite will help us address the increasing demand for our services and provide a more efficient and smooth process for customers” he added.

The new expansion suite will offer marriage services that include a larger ceremony room. Clerk-Recorder Nguyen also announced that two document examiners will be on site to provide real property recording services, eliminating the need for lunch closures. Customers will save time and money by not having to travel to the department’s central office in Santa Ana. The Laguna Hills office will continue to offer free and convenient parking.

Customers can still obtain birth, death, and marriage certificates, file fictitious business name statements, complete their notary public registrations, and much more at the department’s existing office in Suite 150 of the Laguna Hills Civic Center.
