Guide Overview

Family District Courts hear all family law issues including divorce cases, annulments, enforcement or interpretation of agreements incident to divorce, protective orders, suits affecting the parent-child relationship, child custody, visitation, child support, paternity, termination and adoption, child abuse and neglect (involving the Department of Family and Protective Services, or CPS), and all other cases arising under the Texas Family Code. 

Original juvenile cases are assigned to the 304th and 305th District Courts. These cases include protection of children in an emergency, child’s name change, delinquency, children in need of supervision, and when the Petitioner is DFPS, suits affecting the parent-child relationship concerning conservatorship, paternity, and termination and adoption. 

This guide contains information on all the Family District Courts, Associate Courts, and the Dallas County Child Support (IV-D) Court.
