When I hear that I've never received paperwork from the Court

Many courts do NOT send you paperwork.  It is time consuming and costs money to mail documents. 

Generally within the State of Texas, if you want a copy of a legal document that has been signed by the Judge, you need to go to the District Clerk's office where the legal matter was handled and pay for it.  In Harris County, the fee is $1 per page (cash or credit card only), no personal checks are accepted.

If you are waiting for a court to mail you something, you will probably be waiting a LONG time.  If you ever get any paperwork, you are truly LUCKY!
