FINES AND PAYMENTS

Many adults choose to pay the fine prior to a court appearance. If you would like to do so, please follow the steps below.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR JUVENILES: If you are under 17 years of ages State law requires that you appear, with a parent or legal guardian, before a judge at your arraignment or at trial prior to paying your fine. Do not mail the fine payment due, until after you appear before a judge. Payments sent for juvenile defendants prior to the juvenile’s appearance in Court will not be accepted.
Art. 45.057, CCP (h): A child and parent required to appear before the court have an obligation to provide the court in writing with the current address and residence of the child. A violation of this subsection may result in arrest and is a class C misdemeanor.
