District Clerk Gay Wells tells Navasota News, any civil matter brought to the courts by an attorney will be inflicted by an extra fee and a visit to Texas e-file. As local attorney John C Fults told the court he found out the hard way after trying to take care of his business the old pen and paper way, was denied.
But, if you are in the midst of submitting a civil court matter to the clerk’s office on your own, Wells has a warning.
Wells says the Texas e-file system comes online Friday April 10th and will become fully mandatory and paperless by the end of this year. And while this is only for civil matters, she continues, there is a system being put together for the criminal courts as well.
But in the meantime you’d better get used to using your own computer or at least the two new kiosks in the district clerk’s office.
