DO NOT E-FILE YOUR TRANSCRIPT ORDER. All orders can be dropped off, mailed, faxed or emailed to the Clerk's Office for the appropriate division. If you have any questions concerning your transcript or duplicate CD/tape order, call the Electronic Recording Operations Office at (713) 250-5500. If no one is available to assist you at the time of your call, clearly mark on your order form that you wish to be contacted before the order is processed, and indicate your preferred contact method/information.
DO NOT send someone to pick up transcript until you have been notified by court personnel, not the transcription service, that the transcript is ready for pick up.
DEPOSITS: Deposit required for electronically recorded court proceedings will be the full cost of hearing requested. It is payable to the transcription service of your choice. See Rates and Contact Information for Electronic Recording Transcriber Service (by division) for a complete listing of transcription services/rates to choose from.
PARTIAL TRANSCRIPTS: If only a portion of a proceeding is being ordered, specify exactly what material is to be transcribed. Be sure this information is very clear.
COPY TRANSCRIPTS: All orders for copy transcripts must say "TRANSCRIPT COPY," on the order form. Your order will be processed by the transcription service/court reporter that prepared the original transcript.
Placing orders early in the day facilitates same-day processing.
