This important date is on the horizon as Collin County – and the State of Texas – courts head to mandatory electronic filing – or, eFiling.
Beginning January 1, the Texas Supreme Court will require all Civil and Probate cases to be filed electronically. This will apply to all levels of our local court system: Justice Courts, County Courts at Law and District Courts. Collin County is already live and accepting filings.
View the Collin County Civil, Family, and Probate E-Filing Requirements for more information.
Training May Be Available - Check with TexFile or local bar and legal associations for training programs regarding eFiling. The District and County Clerks, Collin County Bar Association and Plano Bar Associations will sponsor a TexFile training on Tuesday, December 3 from Noon-1:00pm in the Central Jury Room.
We’ve posted the court order requiring this new process and a flyer from TexFile, the Texas Judiciary’s selection as the statewide electronic court filing portal for all Texas courts. More information can be found at www.texfile.com.
