District Clerk's Office - eFiling
As of January 1, 2015, our office is no longer be allowed by law to accept any paper filings from attorney on any case unless it is being filed into an unindicted matter.
On December 11, 2012, in Msc. Docket No. 12-9208 the Supreme Court of Texas issued an Order Requiring Electronic Filing in Certain Courts stating that all counties in Texas would transition into mandatory e-filing by attorneys for all civil, probate and family law cases.
On June 30, 2016, in Msc. Docket No. 16-003 the Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas issued an Order Mandating Statewide Electronic Filing in Criminal Cases stating that e-filing would be required in all criminal cases in all counties by January 1, 2020.
Any Application for Writ of Habeas Corpus related to an unindicted criminal matter must be e-filed. We do not accept filing fees for this type of case. A “waiver” account must be used to waive any filing fees from being processed. If your office does not have a waiver account set up, you may reach out to Tyler Technologies for assistance with having one set up.
The Office of Court Administration provides additional information on e-filing rules and procedures at https://www.txcourts.gov/jcit/electronic-filing/
***NOTE***: If you eFile a proposed order and it is signed by the judge after our office has accepted it for filing, you WILL NOT automatically receive a copy of the signed and conformed copy. If you need a copy of any documents in the case not accessible through eFile, your office will have to request a copy and pay any applicable fees as stated in Records & Resources.
