Once a citation has gone into warrant status additional fees will be added to the fine amount and court costs. As stated on your citation, you are required to make a court appearance on or before the date listed. If you fail to appear or contact the Court prior to this date, a Failure To Appear charge and arrest warrants will be issued.
Once a warrant is issued for your arrest, you will be subject to arrest at any time. Should you be stopped for any reason, the officer will be notified that you have an outstanding warrant. You will be arrested and your vehicle may be impounded.
If a warrant has been issued for your arrest, the following procedures apply:
You may pay your warrant(s) in full in person at the Municipal Court Office. A Payment plan will NOT be granted if you have a warrant. You may pay the fine using cash, money order, cashier's check, or credit card. No personal checks will be accepted for warrants. Payment will result in a conviction and will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
If you failed to appear in court and you now have an arrest warrant, you may post a cash bond to have the warrant removed and secure a court date. Surety Bonds will only be accepted upon approval of the Judge. Please contact the Court for the bond amount and more information.
If you have been before the Judge and judgment has been entered and a fine assessed on your case, your only option is to pay the fine in full. No extensions or court dates will be given.
