Supreme Court of Texas Misc. Docket Order 13-9165 and Rule 21(f)(1), Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, require lawyers to electronically file documents in specified counties beginning January 1, 2014. The Order does not require that process servers electronically file returns.
Rule 107(g), Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, states: "The return and any documents to which it is attached must be filed with the court and may be filed electronically or by facsimile, if those methods of filing are available." The rule allows, but does not require, electronic filing of the return.
