    • COURT HEARINGS:

      This Court will conduct all hearings remotely by video and/or telephone conference through Zoom, and/or in person if the prior is not an option for a Party.  If you are in the category of the vulnerable populations (immunocompromised, pregnant, age 65 or older, serious health conditions) please contact the Court and accommodations will be made.   If in person, all precautions will be followed using the Office of Court Administration guidance for any Court Hearing, Trial, or other Court business held in-person. 

      IF YOU ARE A PARTY TO A COURT CASE THAT HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR TRIAL, YOU WILL BE GIVEN THESE OPTIONS ALONG WITH INSTRUCTIONS WHEN THE COURT SETS A TRIAL/HEARING DATE

      The Public will have access to Court Hearings via Youtube.com under the name:

      Justice Court, Tyler County, Tx

    • If you enter the Court and have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been close to another person who has symptoms of COVID-19 or who has tested positive for COVID19 you must inform the Court immediately.

      Upon entrance to the building you will be required to wear a mask or some type of face covering.  You will have your temperature checked by a thermal thermometer and will need to fill out a form answering some basic questions.

    • No jury proceedings permitted, including jury selection and jury trialsprior to December 1, 2020

     

    • EVICTIONS:

      In all residential eviction cases, the landlord must include in an original or amended petition whether or not:

      1. The premises are a "covered dwelling" under Section 4024 of the CARES Act;
      2. The plaintiff is a multifamily borrower in forbearance under Section 4023 of the CARES Act;
      3. The plaintiff provided a 30 day notice to vacate as provided by Sections 4024(c) and 4023(e) of the CARES Act; and
      4. The defendant has or has not provided a Declaration under the CDC moratorium. 

      This requirement applies to ALL evictions, even though the CDC moratorium and the 30 day notice to vacate under the CARES Act only apply to evictions for nonpayment.

      If a Declaration has been provided to the landlord, the court may not proceed unless the judge holds a hearing to determine whether they can proceed and enters a written order detailing why the case may proceed.

      Citations must include a new warning to the tenant about the CDC moratorium: The Centers for Disease Control issued an order stopping some evictions. You may be able to stop your eviction if you sign the attached Declaration under Penalty of Perjury for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Temporary Halt in Evictions to Prevent Further Spread of COVID-19 and provide it to your landlord and the court. Before signing the Declaration, read it carefully and make sure all the statements are true. The Declaration is sworn, meaning you can be prosecuted, go to jail, or pay a fine if any of the statements are not true. Find out more about the order at TexasLawHelp.org.
