E-filing Required for Attorneys
The Supreme Court of Texas has mandated that all attorneys file court documents electronically in the ten most populous counties (including Travis County) beginning January 1, 2014.
As a result of this mandate, except in juvenile cases, attorneys are now required to electronically file (e-file) documents in civil or probate cases in Travis County. Unrepresented (pro se) parties and case participants who are not attorneys may e-file, but are not required to do so. We will continue to make document images available on this website.
To eFile a document, use your Electronic Filing Service Provider.
If you have not yet selected a provider, go to www.efiletexas.gov to start e-filing now.
