Despite the fact that we are living in a world where computers are dominant, most states, as well as their counties, do not provide access to court records, court dockets, or court documents online. Although there are counties that do provide access to them online for free or for a small amount of money, it would still be in your best interest to start where the possibility of obtaining them for free is higher.
You can access court documents at the district court office. If you are searching for any court-related documents, it would be best to pay the district court a visit at 200 S. Augustine St, Ste. B, Center, Texas. Their office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They can also be reached by telephone at (936) 598-4164.
For documents that are not located in the district court, the county court is the next place where you should look to find the court records. You can call Shelby County at (936) 598-6361 to find out the county courts exact location, as well as more information on how you can get the documents that you need. They are also open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., so you can go get personal help. Also, you can visit their website at http://cc.co.shelby.tx.us/.
Shelby County also has a public library to help you with your search. Visit their website, http://www.shelbycountytexashistory.org, to search for the wide range of documents that are available to the public, from divorce to death information.
