Where is the Tarrant County Courthouse

There are several courthouses in downtown Fort Worth, so you want to be sure that you are going to the right one. If you are trying to locate the courthouse for a criminal case (misdemeanor or felony), you want the Tim Curry Justice Center. See the map below depicting its exact location and for driving directions to the courthouse.  There is metered street parking surrounding courthouse and several garages within close walking distance, but plan to be early as parking can sometimes add time to your schedule (as can the elevator inside the courthouse).
