Due to high volume and duplicate filings, we are no longer accepting filings via email or fax. Please file all filings and pleadings in person or by mail.

The appearance date on your citation is not a trial date. It is the deadline date by which you must “appear” to let the court know how you want to take care of your case. You do not need to appear in person but may make an appearance by entering a plea or paying the fine by mail.

Set a court date: If you would like to plead not guilty and set your case for a court date, please mail a written request that includes your name and citation number to our office.

Our mailing address is 8301 S. Polk Street, Suite 2100, Dallas, Texas 75232.

For any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the court at (972) 739-1588.



Motions for Continuance

Requests must be filed at least 3 days prior to the scheduled court date.

If your motion is not timely filed, it will not be considered without good cause and evidence to support your request.

* Failure to appear may result in the hearing/trial proceeding in your absence.*
