The Fort Worth Municipal Court hears cases of city ordinance and code violations, parking and traffic violations and school attendance violations.
Court in the Community
The Fort Worth Municipal Court will conduct a Safe Harbor initiative, meaning residents may visit without fear of arrest for outstanding warrants issued by the court. Court in the Community will be conducted from 1 p.m.- 4 p.m. on March 21, at the Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth, 4005 Campus Drive. Residents who plan to request alternatives to payment should bring all supporting documents for their request, including time payment plan; time served (bring booked-in and booked-out paperwork), community service/indigence (bring paperwork that shows you do not have the financial means to pay a fine); and two forms of identification. To learn more, call 817-392-7866, ext. 2179.
Look up the amount of a fine using the fine schedule (for violations since Jan. 1, 2014).
