About

Responsibilities & Services

The office of District Clerk has been included in every Texas Constitution since the Republic.  Article 5, Section 9 of the Texas Constitution provides that there shall be a District Clerk in each county.  In Hill County the District Clerk serves as the custodian of records for the 66th District Court and the County Court at Law.  The District Clerk is an elected official who serves a four-year term.

The district clerk’s office has the responsibility of filing, docketing (assigning the case to a specific court), and keeping all paperwork and documents concerned with felony criminal cases, misdemeanor cases, family cases, juvenile cases, tax cases, and civil cases.

The district clerk’s office also collects fees, fines, and court costs, and manages all funds held in litigation for these cases.  Any actions ordered or taken by the court are to be recorded by the district clerk’s office, and the office will issue any documents needed for legal actions (for example: a writ of garnishment of wages or a citation to notify a party that a case was filed).

Government Code Compliance

Government Code Section25.0232 dictates that the district clerk’s office shall be the clerk of the district courts and the county courts.  Therefore, in Hill County, all filings and documents for misdemeanor and felony cases are the responsibility of the district clerk’s office.

Jury Selection

The District Clerk’s office is also responsible for the jury selection processes for all Hill County juries including 66th District Court, County Court at Law, County Court and all Justice of the Peace Courts.
