Odyssey Guide and File

The Guide and File application is designed to guide pro se filers when filing petitions and other documents by e-file.

Although e-Filing is not currently mandated for Justice Courts in Texas, our court is currently accepting filings through e-file. Filing online provides many benefits such as eliminating the need to print documents or fill them out by hand. By using e-file, you can file anywhere as long as you have access to the internet.
