Courts in Comal County, Texas

As provided in the Texas Constitution, Comal County has a single court presided over by a county judge.

The Comal County court has concurrent jurisdiction with justice of the peace and district courts in civil cases in which the amount in controversy is small. Jurisdiction is said to be concurrent when two levels of courts have authority to try the same type of case.

The constitutional county courts generally hear the probate cases filed in the county. They also have original jurisdiction over all Class A and Class B misdemeanor criminal cases, which are the more serious minor offenses. These courts usually have appellate jurisdiction in cases appealed from justice of the peace and municipal courts, except in counties where county courts at law have been established. Unless the appeal is one from a designated municipal court of record (trial proceedings are recorded by a court reporter), the appeal takes the form of a trial de novo (a completely new trial).

DWI and other criminal cases are heard in Comal County Court at Law #1, on the second floor of the old courthouse at 100 Main Plaza, New Braunfels, TX, and in Comal County Court at Law #2, on the third floor of the courthouse annex, at 150 N.
