Always glad to see our services appreciated! Way to go, Texas.gov.
eFiling not Just for Attorneys
  This is very cool. Too often, it seems, only insiders have access to certain government services, but I found out that, in Texas, you don't have to be an attorney to file court papers electronically.
  I printed out my filing on my printer, signed it, scanned it to a PDF and uploaded it on Saturday afternoon. This morning I received confirmation from the court clerk. At the same time I filed, I also told the system to send a copy to the the other party in a manner that satisfies legal requirements for notification.
  For both the filing and notification of the other party, it was $16.87. Well worth avoiding the trouble and expense that would have been incurred had I filed in person. For the indigent, the fees are waived.

We're celebrating two decades of eGovernment innovation. #EGOV20
