NOTES: Tex.R.Civ.P.99 (b) states: “The citation shall direct the defendant to file a written answer to the plaintiff’s petition on or before 10 a.m. on the Monday after the expiration of 20 days after the date of service thereof.” If the 20th day after service falls on a Monday, the answer is due on the next Monday. This chart applies only to lawsuits in the District and County Courts in the State of Texas. This Answer Date Calculator does not apply to Justice Courts. Also, the time to answer for eviction action can be as little as seven (7) days.

This table is provided only as a guide in assisting persons in making their own calculations of appearance dates. Always verify current rules, possible rule changes, and the local rules when using this table. While care has been used in preparing this table, the accuracy is not guaranteed, and the use of it is at the sole discretion of the user.

*If the answer date is a state holiday on which the state courts are closed, then the answer is due the next business day (usually Tuesday) at any time. As some courts celebrate federal holidays, always verify your specific jurisdiction’s holiday schedule.
