TexFile, eFiling for Texas logo.


The clerk's office is currently transitioning to a new eFile reviewer tool as required due to the deprecation of Silverlight.  This may result in delays in processing filings while clerk offices adjust to the new system.  This transition will NOT impact the file stamp time received
. 

Please see the links below for training videos and helpful information. Assistance and tech support is also available to attorneys from Tyler Technologies, the contractor who provides the e-filing system to the state.
