This article is a brief guide to Guadalupe County’s Courts. Located in Central Texas between Austin and San Antonio, Guadalupe County’s county seat is Seguin. Other cities include New Braunfels, Schertz, Cibolo, and Selma.

District courts, county courts-at-law, municipal courts, and Justice of the Peace courts serve Hays County. The court in which a case is filed depends on the offense’s severity and the location where the alleged crime occurred.

  • 25th District Court
  • 2nd 25th District Court
