The County Clerk/Comptroller's office maintains the filings of numerous documents listed below. 

Power of Attorney
Corporations
Partnerships & Sole Proprietorship
Military Discharge Papers 


Proof of Publication

As of September 6, 2013, proof of publications for those registering trade names do not have to be filed with the County Clerk.

A proof of publication is no longer required to be filed with the County Clerk because during the 2013 legislative session in the Nebraska Unicameral Legislature, LB209 was passed into law, which changed provisions relating to publication of trade names. LB209 can be viewed here: http:// nebraskalegislature.gov/bills/ view_bill.php?DocumentID=18108 

Proof of publications for those registering trade names are still required to be filed with the Nebraska Secretary of State. 

 

Power of Attorney

 

For information regarding power of attorney documents and forms, it is recommended that you seek legal advice. You can also search “power of attorney” at the Nebraska Legislature’s website at:

 

Nebraskalegislature.gov

 

On the left side of the web page, select Bills and Laws/Search Laws.

In the Keyword(s) field, enter “power of attorney” (include the quotes). This search will bring you a number of Nebraska statutes that address powers of attorney.

 

You may file your completed power of attorney with the Douglas County Clerk’s office for $5 per page; however, the act of filing does not make the document ‘official’. It is a convenience for safeguarding the document and the document becomes a permanent filing in the office of the Douglas County Clerk.

 

Please note: This office does not provide forms.
