Electronic filing or e-filing enables filers and courts to efficiently process documents and fees online.
TexFile manages the flow of information among filers, clerks, court personnel, and judges:
Filer Submits Documents:
After selecting a certified electronic filing service provider (EFSP), filers log on to their
providers website to file case-related documents online to any participating court in Texas.
EFSP Delivers Documents to the Court:
EFSPs check submissions for completeness, calculate filing fees and court costs, and
electronically deliver the submitted documents to participating courts.
Clerks Accept or Reject Submissions:
Court clerks receive the electronically filed documents and associated fees for processing and
acceptance, review the documents, accept or reject the filings, and provide an electronic
timestamp notification to the filer for the accepted documents.
