Extension of Criminal e-Filing Start Date

The Court of Criminal Appeals has granted Tarrant County an extension to begin Criminal e-Filing January 1, 2018, instead of the previously intended July 1, 2017.


This extension was granted for various technical reasons and to further study business processes.  The rules for e-filing were published April 27, 2017, and we believe that it will be better for all concerned to take advantage of this extension after several meetings with affected Tarrant County Stakeholders.

More details will be announced later including dates for possible seminars that would be intended to help attorneys and/or paralegals gear up for the January 1, 2018 start date.

As always, your comments and suggestions are appreciated and welcomed.
