EFFECTIVE JUNE 14, 2018:
Defendants with active warrants will now be able to appear to speak with the court to resolve any outstanding violations. Defendants must be prepared to make an initial payment towards the outstanding violations in order to request an Installment Agreement for any remaining balances.
Previously, defendants were required to request a docket appointment to speak directly with the judge in open court. The new hours will now allow for appearances on a "walk-in" basis. Those defendants will be worked in between Initial Hearing cases.
Defendants may still resolve citations on/or before their initial court date/time in lieu of a court appearance. ALL Fines/Costs and any Special Assessment Fees MUST be paid IN FULL. Any PAYMENT request will still require a mandatory court appearance.
Q: I lost/misplaced my citation. How do I know when my court date is and how much I owe?
A: Contact court at (830) 709-3692 ext. 3 to get information on your court date and costs.
Q: Can I make payments?
A: Yes, but you must make a mandatory appearance in court. (Check your citation for the date and designated time.)
Q: How can I get my case(s) dismissed?
A: Depending on many factors, moving violations may be dismissed by requesting (and paying all costs) Deferred Disposition, or requesting a Driver’s Safety Course. Some violations (Compliance Violations) may be dismissed if the defect/nuisance that is the subject of the offense has been remedied. A Dismissal Fee may be assessed. Contact court personnel to ask how to remedy the defect/nuisance and if any fee is required.

Failure to Appear
This court is contracted with the Texas Department of Public Safety through their failure to appear system. If you fail to appear in court as required by law for the prosecution of an offense, or if you fail to pay or satisfy a judgment ordering the payment of a fine and costs in the manner ordered by the court, renewal of your driver’s license may be denied, and an additional charge will be filed against you.
