Changes Resulting from COVID-19
Due to the closure of City Hall, and consequently the Municipal Court offices, all initial appearances from citations issued will be moved to February 28, 2021. You will need to contact the courts before this date to see what your options are.
If you already have a court date set for your citation there will be a virtual court time given. You need to contact the courts after the first of the year and provide your email address in order to be provided the link for your virtual court date.
If you are unsure what your status is you can look your citations up under CITATION SEARCH (linked above), search cases, then enter your name or citation. If you have a common name you might want to use the citation option. If you use only the name option, it will pull up everyone with your name, not just your violation.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, all Defendants and attorneys shall be scheduled a Virtual Hearing to be held remotely. If you believe that you can not participate in a Virtual Hearing, please contact the Haltom City Municipal Court at 817-222-7773 to request an in-person hearing. You may also request an in-person hearing via mail at 5024 Broadway Avenue, Haltom City, Texas 76117.
Once the City Hall reopens to the public, requests may be made in person at 5024 Broadway Avenue, Haltom City, Texas 76117. Please explain why you can not participate in a Virtual Hearing. If no remote accommodation is available, the Judge will determine whether a continuance is warranted or permit the hearing to appear in person under the precautions and protocols in the approved in-person operating plan.
Vulnerable populations who are scheduled for court will be accommodated by remote hearings and/or teleconferencing where possible, usage of online payment portal, mail, or night drop box and individual hearings when necessary. Please contact the Haltom City Municipal Court at 817-222-7773 or via mail at 5024 Broadway Avenue, Haltom City, Texas 76117 for accommodations.
