Warrant Information

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 or you may pay on-line.
  • You may pay the fine using cash, money order, cashier's check, or credit card. No personal checks.
  • Note payment in full will result in a conviction and will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
  • If you have never appeared in court, you may request to schedule a court date.

Warrant Types


There are two types of warrants – Alias and Capias Pro Fine.

  • An Alias warrant is issued when a Defendant fails to make an initial appearance in the Court.
  • A Capias Pro Fine warrant is issued when a Defendant fails to comply with an Order of the Court, i.e. failure to complete defensive driving, failure to complete community service, or failure to make payment. This type of warrant may be cleared by payment only.

Collections


After a warrant has been active for sixty (60) days, the warrant information will be transferred to our collections law firm for processing. In accordance with Texas State Law, a 30% collection fee will be applied to any violation transferred to the collections law firm.

Credit for Time Served


Credit for time served may be requested from the Judge for violations in an active warrant status if you have been in custody for an extended period of time.
