Chambers County Pretrial Services should now be included as an agency in your expunction petition. 

Chambers County does not have one department that magistrates.  Any of our six elected Justice of the Peace officials can magistrate and normally take turns doing so.  Therefore, unless your client was arrested by another agency, you must include (along with all other relevant agencies) the correct magistrate in your Application and Order to ensure your client’s case is completely expunged.

In addition, the Office of Court Administration (OCA) should be sent the final Order.  E-Filing the Application for Expunction places the document in re: SearchTx, governed by the OCA, therefore, you must notice the OCA of the order.  Per House Bill 685, 86th legislative session “a court clerk is not responsible for the management or removal of a document from the state database”.

You can send the executed Order in two ways:

  1. Pretrial Services

    Mailing Address
    PO Box 2298
    Anahuac, TX 77514

    Fax: 409-267-3034
