To meet these complex requirements, the staff of the District Clerk's Office has made implementing cost-saving technologies one of their highest priorities. Please use this website to find the many online resources for information, services, and searches pertaining to district court matters, as well as links to some of these technologies such as the eFile TXCourts.gov e-filing system. Let us know if you have any ideas as to how we might improve our website so that we may better serve your needs.
In addition to serving the district courts, deputy district clerks manage the paperwork at the Central Magistrate's office where all those arrested by local law enforcement officers are taken to be advised of the charges being brought against them and either processed out on bond or sent to jail.
