The Supreme Court of Texas mandated eFiling in Texas on January 1, 2014. In support of the Supreme Court mandate, the Office of Court Administration is transitioning from the existing Texas.gov portal to a new statewide eFiling portal called eFileTexas.gov. Our eFiling system is expanding to connect to eFileTexas.gov, beginning on October 1, 2014.
No, once you register with our system, you will simply need to link your firm to eFileTexas.gov. Here are complete step-by-step instructions for firm registration.
You will receive a monthly invoice for all transactions filed through our system. Payments of invoices are due net 15. Our fee is transaction-based. You will pay $2.99 for each transaction eFiled plus any applicable statutory fees as well as a 2.89% convenience fee charged by the eFileTexas.gov portal.
An overview of the mandate as well as tips on how to transition your firm can be found here.
The maximum file size for eFileTexas.gov is 35MB per transaction.
Firms must have at least one (1) attorney with a TX Bar Number in their File & ServeXpress firm account to be able to file electronically into Texas courts through the File & ServeXpress system.

The maximum file size is 30 megabytes (MB). If your filing is larger than 30MB (total size of all documents combined), you will need to separate your filing into 30MB or smaller segments and submit multiple filings (see instructions below for submitting multiple filings). During the upload process on Step 2, our system calculates and displays your total number of pages and filing size as you upload your documents. You may also right-click on the document and select properties to view its file size.
