WomensLaw regrets that these resources have not been updated recently.  However, please note that the legal content on the Know the Laws section is updated annually and the rest of the website is also updated regularly.

Below is a list of courthouses where you can file for a protective order.  (If you want to file for custody, divorce, or anything else, you may want to call the courthouse to make sure that the court we have listed is the proper courthouse.)  However, since in many counties in Texas, the forms are filed with the district attorney - instead of directly in the courthouse - we are linking you to a directory of district attorneys' contact information, published by the Texas State Directory. (Note: We are not affiliated with this website and cannot vouch for the information contained in it.)  You will find links to the pro se protective order kit forms that you need to file on our TX Download Court Forms page.  For further help, you may want to reach out to a local domestic violence program or a legal services organization.  You can find links to both types of organizations on our TX Where to Find Help page.
