March 19, 2020:
The Texas Supreme Court, Texas Court of Criminal Appeals and the Travis County Courts have issued Emergency Orders. Therefore, the Travis County District Clerk’s office is taking safety precautions to protect our customers and employees amidst COVID-19 concerns by closing our offices to the public as outlined by the Travis County Commissioners and other government agencies.  In addition, we have reduced our staff but will still process emergency motions/orders as defined in the Travis County District Civil/Criminal Courts Emergency Orders, see link to Orders below:

Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020, we are suspending passport processing until further notice.  For additional information about passports, the United States Department of State website may be helpful:

Documents received through efile and the mail will continue to be handled but not at the same speed as before the COVID-19 virus emergency was declared.   Our team is still answering questions through our main number: 512/854-9457 or our e-mail address:  We ask for patience especially if a specific person needs to respond to your questions or requests because a response cannot occur immediately but will take place as soon as possible.


Thanks for your cooperation as we all work on keeping our community and staff safe but still ensure that justice continues.
