Notice:
Posted: 08/16/2019

The Fort Bend County District Clerk’s Office is transitioning towards paperless case files for Civil and Criminal cases. Family cases are paperless and have been successfully operating in the courtroom without a physical case file. This means paper case files will no longer be available for viewing in the courtrooms nor in the District Clerk’s Office.

Case files can be viewed via public online access through our website or in-person by utilizing public access terminals located in the District Clerk’s Office.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact my office for assistance at 281-341-4509.

Sincerely,

Beverley McGrew Walker
Fort Bend County District Clerk
