Parking for the Tarrant County Family Courthouse

There are parking meters around the courthouse that fill up rather quickly in the mornings. The same is true for the nearby parking garage (just east of the courthouse). So plan on being early.

Also plan on getting there early enough to get through the line and metal detector. You will go through metal detectors, so be sure not to bring knives or any other weapons.

Tarrant County Family Courthouse Architecture

The Family Law Center in Tarrant County is a five-level structure crafted from a mix of brick and granite. The architectural design was a joint endeavor by David M. Schwarz from Washington, D.C., and Gideon Toal based in Fort Worth, who worked as Associate Architects. They selected pink granite and red brick deliberately to harmonize with the nearby historic Tarrant County Courthouse across Weatherford Street. The building’s modest height ensures the courthouse tower and dome remain prominent, reflecting a well-considered effort to fit the new building into the historic surroundings of downtown Fort Worth. The design of the Family Law Center is in the Post Modern style, which merges traditional aesthetic elements with contemporary functionality.
