Second Court of Appeals

Clerks & Court Reporters 

Clerk's and Court Reporter's records must be filed electronically and must conform to Appendix C  of the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure, Section 8 of the Uniform Format Manual for Texas Reporters Records, the Court’s local rules, and any guidelines posted on the Court’s website (see Clerk/Court Reporter Resources section below).

The record must be submitted through the TAMES Records Submission Portal (RSP). Notices of Appeal, information sheets, extension requests and monthly court reporter reports should also be filed through the RSP. Clerks and Court Reporters can request access to the portal. Once processed, a password and filing instructions will be emailed to you by the Office of Court Administration. Your logon and password will work for all Courts of Appeals.

Documents cannot be "locked" by the filer as this prevents application of the electronic file stamp by the Court. Locked documents and non-conforming documents will be rejected and the clerk will be required to resubmit the filing.

Once the records have been filed by the Court, you will receive notice that the record has been successfully filed.
