As of Feb. 1, 2023, the District Clerk’s Civil Divisions (Family, Civil, Finance and Civil Records) will be at the Civil Family Court Facility (CFCF), 1700 Guadalupe Street, 3rd Floor in Austin, Texas but we ask for the public’s patience as we are in the process of moving and adjusting to our new space.  Any questions about office operations, please call our general number at (512) 854-9457 or email [email protected].

You can now save time by having your passport photo taken at the district clerk’s office when you present your application. The fee for a passport photo is $14.00. Payment for the photo is accepted in cash or by credit card. If you choose to have your passport photo taken elsewhere, a single color photo is required.
