As of 2010, the Tarrant County district court clerk allowed the remote electronic access of permissible court records on the county district clerk's office and official website. Documents open for the public include civil, criminal and felony cases. The document lookup service is free of charge, but a fee applies if the searcher cannot provide the necessary information and requires the assistance of the district clerk.

The searcher must file a request to the appropriate office to obtain copies of the court records. The copies may be retrieved from the closest sub-courthouses or be mailed to the requester's residence or office. Standard fees apply for noncertified and certified copies.

Aside from the Tarrant County clerk's official website, the Texas Department of Public Safety also provides public record information of arrests and prosecution of individuals charged with Class B misdemeanor or in violation of Texas criminal statutes. Anyone who needs to perform a statewide search has to create an account and sign-up on the site.
