Courthouse Information​

All family district courts are now located in the Harris County Civil Courthouse located at 201 Caroline, Houston, Texas 77002.  See the list of each family court, specific location, and direct telephone number for your convenience.

Parking

Parking is available all around the courthouse.  Most parking lots accept credit cards; however, it is best to also have some cash.  Leave home early enough to find and pay for parking.

Security

You must go through security similar to the airport to enter the courthouse. Make sure you leave small knives, pepper spray, fingernail clippers, etc. at home. You will be required to remove your shoes, belts, cell phones, keys, etc. The lines for security can become long. Expect delays at security.

Attire

Courthouse attire is business casual. No shorts or flip-flops. No low-cut blouses or mini-skirts. The courthouse is a formal venue which requires conservative, respectful attire at all times.

Etiquette

Make sure your cell phone and any other device is on silent at all times inside the courtroom.  If it rings in the courtroom, the bailiff can take it from you. Do not talk in the courtroom if the Judge is on the bench.  If the Judge calls your name, always stand to speak to the Judge. Always address the Judge as “Judge” or “Your Honor”.

Food Court in basement

You can enjoy Starbucks or Luby’s in the basement of the Civil Courthouse.  Credit Cards are accepted.  The deli closes early afternoon.
