|TITLE 37||PUBLIC SAFETY AND CORRECTIONS|
|PART 1||TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY|
|CHAPTER 29||PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE|
|RULE §29.8||Computation of Time|
Unless otherwise required by statute, in computing time periods prescribed by this chapter or by a judge's order, the day of the act, event, or default on which the designated period of time begins to run is not included. The last day of the period is included, unless it is a Saturday, a Sunday, or an official State holiday. When these rules specify a deadline or set a number of days for filing documents or taking other actions, the computation of time shall be by calendar days rather than business days, unless otherwise provided in this chapter or a judge's order. However, if the period to act is five days or less, the intervening Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays are not counted.
