Tarrant County Justice Courts
Also known as the “People’s Court,” the eight Justice Courts in Tarrant County hear any civil cases with a jurisdictional limit of $10,000. These courts are overseen by a Justice of the Peace, meaning that Tarrant County citizens, with respect to their precinct, can also get married in these courts. Higher value cases, and specific family law cases, may be moved to the Tarrant County Family Court, the Domestic Relations Office, or the Civil District or County Court.
The contact information and locations of the Justice Courts in Tarrant County are listed below:
