Welcome to the Office of the Bexar County District Clerk
When Texas became a state in 1845, the new Texas Constitution made all County Offices elective positions. The Office of the District Clerk is elected for a four-year term and is primarily the Clerk of Court for all District Courts that hear Civil, Criminal, Juvenile, and Family Court cases. Deputy District Clerks are assigned to each court to act as court clerks, and there are additional deputies supporting court operations and administration. The District Clerk is the administrator of all district court files, records, effects, and conservator of the court registry.
Serving the 19th largest County in the entire United States and the 4th largest County in Texas, the Office of the Bexar County District Clerk currently administers 27 District Courts, 10 auxillary courts, and 1 Magistrate court. These courts are comprised of 14 Civil (4 auxillary), 10 Criminal (3 auxillary), and 3 Juvenile (3 auxillary). To meet these complex requirements, the staff of the District Clerk have made implementing cost-saving technologies one of their highest priorities.
