    Judge De Leon Re-sets Eviction and Criminal Misdemeanor Plea Dockets until after the Easter Holiday.  

    Judge Sergio L. De Leon

    Judge Sergio DeLeon

    Judge De Leon’s vision of serving both the court and the community has become a working reality. Soon after taking office he formed a partnership with what was then called the TWU Law School and hired a legal intern; a first for Justice of the Peace Courts in Tarrant County. Additionally, he held the first-ever Precinct 5 Justice of the Peace and Constable Town Hall Meeting to address a new Judicial Complex to better serve the growing needs of the Precinct 5 community. Moreover, Judge De Leon forged a partnership with FWISD Schools and initiated the “Honorary Jurors Program” which invites students from area schools to serve as honorary jurors and observe court proceedings. The program has been a tremendous success and has been featured in the Fort Worth Star Telegram and the Texas Association of Counties, County Magazine.       


    File your case online

    For your convenience we now offer E-Filing. Use EFILETEXAS to file new cases and add additional documents to existing small claims, eviction or debt claim cases. This service does not provide a step-by-step guide. Documents have to be scanned into the program before filing. It is important to remember that you may incur additional fees. The court will produce the first copy (original) for our records at no charge, but any additional copies, such as petitions that have to be attached to citations that the court generates to be served to defendants, will be an additional charge. The fees are $1 for the first page and 25 cents for every page thereafter. Please remember that a copy of any original petitions will be needed for each named defendant.
