Although not mandated to e-file until June 1, 2016, we chose to begin this process earlier to allow our customers as well as ourselves time to adjust and become familiar with this method. To take advantage of this early E-filing opportunity, please visit EFileTexas.gov.
Please include a Civil Case Information Sheet with ALL new cases, as well as filings that re-open a disposed case.
Please attach a copy of the Order Regarding Children, Property, and Conduct of Parties to all new family law cases.
Please submit a Reporting Form for Suits Affecting the Family Relationship and/or Divorce with ALL new family law cases or filings that re-open a disposed family suit.
Pursuant to Texas Rules of Civil Procedure 99(d): The party filing any pleading upon which citation is to be issued and served shall furnish the clerk with a sufficient number of copies thereof for the use in serving the parties, and when copies are so furnished the clerk shall make no charge for the copies.
If issuance of citation is needed, you may pay for copies of your E-filed document that needs to be attached through the e-filing system.
