Texas Supreme Court Establishes re:SearchTX – A Statewide Portal

To:                  Travis County District and County Court at Law Judges and Attorneys

From:             Velva L. Price, Travis County District Clerk

Dana DeBeauvoir, Travis County Clerk

The Texas Supreme Court has established a statewide portal, re:SearchTX, to display court records filed electronically in Texas. As a result, a copy of most instruments filed through efiletexas.gov and Electronic Filing Service Providers (EFSPs) beginning November 1, 2018 will be retained by Tyler Technologies and made publicly accessible through the re:SearchTX website.  Attorneys, judges, and clerks may use re:SearchTX to view records from a broader timeframe – filed beginning January 1, 2016.  Criminal filings are not accessible on re:SearchTX.  Please note that re:SearchTX may not include all documents filed (i.e. Orders, Pro Se filings, etc.).

There is the potential for a document which was ordered filed under seal and/or contains confidential/sensitive information to appear on that site un-redacted because the attorney/filer did not properly redact or mark the document as sensitive in the e-file system.  When filing documents through eFileTexas, please recall that Attorneys are required to redact confidential/sensitive information or, in certain limited cases, mark the document (see Texas Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 21c).  It is essential that Attorneys do this to protect the privacy of confidential/sensitive information.

The respective Clerks do not manage the re:SearchTX system.  The following information is provided to assist you:

  • For questions about re:SearchTX, contact Tyler Technologies: support@tylertech.com | (844) 307-8720
  • For expungement in re:SearchTX, contact the Office of Court Administration: ocaexpunctions@txcourts.gov.
  • For additional information about this project, go to http://www.txcourts.gov/jcit.

In addition, it is possible that a case or case-related documents that were later sealed by court order could appear on the site. If a case or document was sealed post e-file and appears on the website:
