The Denton County District Clerk has been accepting documents by e-filing for several years. E-filing has been permissive but as of January 1, 2014, it will be mandatory for attorneys to e-file on all civil and family cases in Denton County. This is pursuant to Supreme Court Order 13-9165. See the links below on this page for training opportunities. E-filing guides and other helpful information are also available at eFile Texas.
