The Williamson County District Clerk has been processing E-Filing since May 12, 2014. The mandatory deadline for eFiling for all Civil and Family cases is July 1, 2014. In late 2012, the Texas Supreme Court mandated electronic filing in civil and family cases in district courts, statutory county courts, constitutional county courts and statutory probate courts on a graduated schedule from January 2014 through July 2016.

Criminal E-Filing Notice
The Williamson County District Clerk’s office is currently offering permissive e-File in criminal cases. The Supreme Court Misc. Docket No. 17-002 reflects the Order and instructions on the mandate for Criminal e-File.
Williamson County is mandated to “go live” on January 1, 2018 with criminal e-File. The permissive stage is a chance for the attorney and the clerk to test the system and work out any issues prior to the January 1, 2018 deadline.
If any attorney would like to begin the process we are ready to accept your criminal filings. We know there is always some hesitation when beginning something new and unfamiliar. Please keep in mind this is a Mandate and we will be following the guidelines as set out by the Supreme Court.
Please refer to the instructions set out by the Supreme Court in No. 17-002 for information regarding requirements of the e-File process. If you should have questions regarding the Williamson County District Clerk’s business process please contact Cathy Mendoza, Chief Deputy @ 512/943-1212. She has been assigned as the project manager by me to work with attorneys during this transition. If we can be of assistance please feel free to give us a call.
