Notice of Change in Texas Law

On June 24, 2013, in Msc. Docket No 13- 9092 the Supreme Court of Texas issued an Order stating that all counties in Texas would transition into mandatory e-filing by attorneys for all civil, probate and family law cases. (http://www.txcourts.gov/jcit/efiling/efilinghome.asp)

Since Comal County already accepts e-filing we are on the fast track for the new implementation from Tex. File. This means we have an E-Filing Go-Live target date of October 2nd, 2013. We strongly encourage all attorneys to begin using Tex. File e-filing for Texas on that date.

By January 1st, 2015, Comal County Court At Law, Civil and Probate Departments will no longer be allowed by law to accept any paper filings from attorneys; they must be e-filed. For more information about E-Filing go to http://www.texfile.com/
