Juveniles in Municipal Court

If you are 16 years of age or younger and received a citation, your parent or guardian will be sent a letter of notice to appear in court with you before the Municipal Court Judge. This is required by state law. 

If you fail to appear, a notice will be sent to the Texas Department of Public Safety to suspend your driver’s license or prohibit you from getting one. 

An order can be issued for a marshal to take you into custody from school or home until a parent can appear with you.

Appearance in Court

You must follow proper dress code and etiquette in the courtroom. Cell phones should be turned off or left on silent
