Electronic Filing (E-Filing) for ALL Civil Cases
The Supreme Court of Texas has mandated that all civil cases, including family and probate cases, by attorneys in appellate courts, and all non-juvenile civil cases, including family and probate cases, by attorneys in district courts, statutory county courts, constitutional courts, and statutory probate courts be filed electronically. The Supreme Court relied on the Judicial Committee on Information Technology (JCIT) to develop policy recommendations and the Office of Court Administration (OCA) to procure and contract a vendor. Tyler Technologies was the selected vendor and they have created a new system called "TexFile" to administer the civil electronic filing for the State of Texas.
