Court documents, despite the fact that they can accessed by the public, are still considered sensitive information, and so posting them online is not ideal. States and their counties recognize this, so they do not let this information be made available on websites. The best way you can retrieve these files and records is to visit the court offices or contact the clerk.
Smith County is one county that does not provide court records online. If you want to retrieve files from the district court, you can send a message addressed to their district clerk to P.O. Box 1077, Tyler, Texas. If you are in doubt about some details, you can always call them at their telephone number, (903) 590-1660. The district court is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can also get information from their official website, http://www.smith-county.com/.
The county court is the next office you should visit if you are searching for court records. You can also send a message directly to the county clerk at P.O. Box 1018, 200 E. Ferguson, #300 Tyler, Texas, for easier access to the documents that you are looking for. The website of the county court is the same of that of the district court, so you can use it to look for further information or answers to your questions. The libraries in Smith County can also help you with your search, so you should pay them a visit as well.
