Focused on Forms, Features and Your Feedback
We understand having the right form for a case is essential. Forms are the foundation of our document assembly system. However, document assembly software features make forms easier to use and streamline the processes associated with generating documents for a case. All of this saves you precious time and money when running your law practice. That's why we're focused on continually enhancing both forms and features. And, we rely on your feedback to help us know what else we can do to help you.
Another Free TXdocs CLE Webinar
Our last webinar was a huge success so we're pleased to offer you with another FREE webinar that includes 1.25 hours of ethics CLE credit for attorneys and 1 hour of CLE for paralegals. This one hour fifteen minute webinar will demonstrate how to use all of TXdocs' power and capabilities for managing a divorce case, including lots of tips and tricks that you'll wish you had known about a long time ago. Join us at noon on Thursday December 5, 2019 for Divorce Course: From A to Z with TXdocs hosted by Founder/President/CEO Alan Schoolcraft.
Survey results from our last webinar showed no clear winner when it came to prioritizing our software development efforts. The responses were pretty evenly distributed between e-filing, QuickBooks, and LawPay. Alan will discuss these future plans in the webinar mentioned above. Keep in mind, the software is developed by our programmers while the forms are developed by our attorneys and paralegals. Working on the software does not impact our ability to continue adding forms. So keep the ideas coming to firstname.lastname@example.org or (210) 253-9506 as we always want your suggestions and requests to help direct our development efforts.
We've built a lot of great functionality into TXdocs to help you assemble documents and manage your practice with ease. See how using our tools can help you accomplish these tasks:

Forms . . . and More Forms
On the forms front, we've released hundreds of new forms across multiple practice areas since May and are continuing to expand, especially in family law and litigation. Your Civil Litigation library for example got a major addition with approximately 70 forms added just since October including Pre Trial Discovery, Dismissals, Injunctions, Discovery, Affidavits and Post Trial documents.
We have also answered your specific form requests by adding Unsworn Declarations in every practice area, a Statutory Durable Power of Attorney in Business Organizations and Civil Litigation and Counterpetition and Temporary Orders for Modifications of Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship in Family Law. In addition, we have added these specialized forms and options to your Family Law library: Extended SPO, Alternating Weeks of Possession Schedule, options for varying Tax Exemptions for Dependents, geographic limitations, and Original Petition for Name Change.
As the year closes, our form development focus will shift primarily to Trusts (new practice area) and tax oriented estate planning Wills. We expect those forms to be released early in the new year.
We've Got You Covered
All TXdocs forms were updated to reflect the legislative changes as of September 1, 2019. For subscribers that use the SBOT Family Law Practice Manual forms instead of our TXdocs Family Law volume, we are not able to update these forms until the Bar releases their changes (anticipated in Spring 2020). In the interim, we've added a note to applicable SBOT Family Law forms describing any legislative updates that would affect that particular form and provided the language we've used in our Family Law forms as a reference.
Features that Make a Real Difference
On the features front, we're developing an integrated e-filing system which will be much easier to use than any other e-filing system available and we're redesigning the user interface to modernize the look and feel of TXdocs while also making it easier to use. These software enhancements are planned to be ready early next year too.
Behind our Fanatical Service: Spotlighting Bobby Rodriguez, TXdocs Subscriber Support
Whether you're new to TXdocs or a longtime subscriber, be sure to follow Bobby @TXdocsSupport. He’ll help you stay ahead of the game with the latest tips and tricks, and keep you informed of any new tools or content that will enhance your TXdocs experience.
Born in Corpus, Bobby moved to San Antonio around the age of 5. He grew up on the northeast side and attended MacArthur High School. That is where coincidentally, he first encountered then Junior English teacher Marialyn Barnard, now former Justice of the Fourth Court of Appeals Marialyn Barnard and current V.P. of Development here at TXdocs. Among the many things he learned from her, was that she apparently was not a fan of the group LoverBoy, because singing one of their songs in her class, earned him a trip to the vice principal’s office.
When his singing career failed to pan out, Bobby went to work for the family embroidery business. He would spend twenty years learning many valuable lessons on quality and customer service that he now brings to TXdocs.
He attended and graduated from the San Antonio College Paralegal Program, where his hard work and determination earned him a recommendation from the director of the program for an internship with us as a document tester 4+ years ago. It was not long before it became evident that he was an incredibly reliable and invaluable asset to the team. He excelled as a tester and soon advanced from tester to coder where he flourished. However, as our subscriber base grew, Bobby’s abundant customer service knowledge and skills quickly rose to the surface. He exhibited a genuine tenacity for ensuring every subscriber interaction was a positive one. As a success-minded team player who values his contribution and takes pride and ownership in everything he does, Bobby's unrelenting attitude toward providing our subscribers unparalleled customer service, quality, and consistency is a model to our entire staff as is his unwavering discipline.
A proud father, his daughter is majoring in biology at Texas State University, where she attends on full scholarship. He has 2 older sisters, one a Red Raider who lives in Tennessee and works for the National Park Service, and the other an Aggie, who lives in Boerne, TX and works for USAA. Although it would seem Bobby is always here at work, in his free time he enjoys uncorking a fine box of wine, cooking, and watching almost any sporting event.
