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 post a cash bond to have the warrant removed and set a court date.
  • Surety bonds will only be accepted upon approval of the judge. Please contact the Municipal Court for the bond amount.

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. This type of warrant may be cleared by payment, the posting of a surety bond, or the posting of a cash bond.
  • 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 – no bonds will apply.

Posting Bonds

A surety bond may be obtained through a bail bondsman or licensed attorney. The bondsman or attorney contacts the Court for the correct bond information and once the bond is filed and processed, the warrant will be cleared and both the Defendant and surety are notified of the date and time of the Court hearing the Defendant must attend. Failure to attend the hearing may result in the warrant being re-issued and the Court beginning bond forfeiture proceedings against the surety.

A cash bond may be filed directly at the Court office. The cash bond will equal the total amount due for the warrant(s) and, once filed, will be held to guarantee the Defendant’s appearance at a scheduled Court hearing. Failure to attend the hearing may result in the forfeiture of the cash bond to pay all fines and fees due for the violation.

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. Please contact the Court office at 682-831-4660 for more information.
