Hidalgo County filing into the 21st century

Katie Lopez, Valley Central
Processing paper files can be a time consuming and costly task, but Hidalgo County is looking to kick that way of doing business to the curb.

"There was a court mandate that is now mandating all civil filings, short of juveniles and child welfare cases, be filed electronically come January 2014," District Clerk Laura Hinojosa said. "Hidalgo County is in the top ten counties that will start the e-filing on January 2nd." 

The county could soon add another type of e-filing to the list---criminal cases.

Recently, State Representative Terry Canales' bill to move all criminal filings electronically passed the Texas House.
