In recognition of the COVID-19 Pandemic and in compliance with various state and local orders, including Emergency Orders from the Supreme Court of Texas, the Travis County Civil and Family Courts are primarily operating on a remote basis. While courts continue to hold hearings and bench trials remotely, jury trials have been postponed until such time as they may be resumed safely, but no earlier than September 28, 2020. Please read the emergency orders related to COVID-19 or contact Court Administration for more information.
