District Clerk


Pardon our technology dust – The Travis County District Clerk requests your patience and understanding as our call-center phone system is being converted in the upcoming days [9/15 – 9/25]. It may take us a little longer to answer the phones and get you to where you need to go as we adjust to the new system. We look forward to responding quicker and with more efficiency once the new system has been installed.


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 opening our family, non-family/civil records, finance and collections work by appointment only at the Heman Marion Sweatt Courthouse, 1000 Guadalupe, Suite 103. The criminal office will still remain closed to the public until a later date.

Appointments are required to access in-person services.

In-Person Services

*Passport appointments are only available at our 5501 Airport Blvd, Austin, Texas location.

We refer you to the Emergency Orders issued by the Travis County Courts:

Documents received through efile and the mail will continue to be handled as quickly as possible (but due to increased requests, not necessarily 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: [email protected]. We ask for patience especially if a specific person needs to respond to your questions or since the response may take more time to coordinate.

Thanks for your cooperation as we all work on keeping our community and staff safe while ensuring that justice continues.


Velva L. Price,
District Clerk
