VERY IMPORTANT! In an attempt to simplify notices and give consistency to the public and the Family Bar this is the new policy (EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY) of the Harris County Family Trial Division. ALL of the family courts will now follow the announcement of HISD. If HISD cancels then there will be no docket calls in any of the Family courts (court will be open unless the building is closed by the county though). If HISD starts late then the courts will call docket if docket start time is AFTER the HISD start time and will not call docket if docket start time is BEFORE the HISD start time. Pref set trials should be handled directly with the court though. IF the building is closed then all the courts are closed. You may now rely on this rule unless a specify court puts out something independently.
