For many people, the first they know about a divorce, child custody, child support, or other family law case, which involves them, is when a, hopefully polite, process server hands them a packet of papers and tells them they’ve been served.
Regardless how you find out about your pending lawsuit in Denton County, you should always seek the advice of an attorney right away. What many people don’t know, however, is that prior to, or even after, talking with an attorney, there is an easy way to keep track of your legal matter.
The Denton County District Clerk maintains an easy to use website that is regularly updated and is full of information about your case.
Here’s how you do it: Just go to http://justice.dentoncounty.com/, select the type of case you have, enter a party name or the cause number, and, voila, you can find out what court your case is filed in, party and attorney information, and just about everything that has happened in Court regarding your case. The Court generally even posts hearing dates and times on this site.
Obviously, if you have a lawyer representing you in your divorce or family law matter, their office is the place to start for information about your case, but, in this day and age of instant information, the Denton County Justice site is another great place to keep track of that important information.
