Pasadena Municipal Court COVID-19 Department Update

 

The Municipal Court is open for in-person and virtual proceedings pursuant to an operating plan found here

You may also make payments, apply for deferred disposition, apply for a driver safety course, or clear a warrant in the Court lobby.  The Court cannot accept web payments, but credit card payments may be taken by telephone at (713) 475-5562.  Due to the high volume of calls received, you may be placed on hold and/or asked to leave your name or number so that you may be contacted by a clerk as soon as possible.

Persons who have missed court dates should reschedule at this time in person, by email at court@pasadenatx.gov or in writing at P.O. Box 1575, Pasadena, TX 77501.  

In the absence of a request, those who have missed their first court setting may receive a notice of reset court date by phone, text message and/or regular mail depending upon the contact information available to the Court.    Due to the large backlog of pending cases, however, it may be several weeks before you receive a notice of reset. You will be afforded the opportunity to arrange an alternate court setting by mail or in person.

You may also request a virtual hearing via Zoom.  Please see (here) to request a virtual hearing and for further information or use the QR code embedded below:
