Citation Payment Options

Citation Payments

You may pay the fine and court costs/fees for the violation(s) you are charged with in full or you may request a payment plan for balances over $125.00. Payment plans require a minimum downpayment of $100, then a monthly payment of $100 until paid in full on total balances of less than $1,500.00.  If you wish to pay your fine and court costs/fees in full prior to your initial appearance date (within 30 days of the date of the citation), you may pay them online, by phone, in person, or by mail. Please note that choosing to pay in full or starting a payment plan requires a plea of Guilty or No Contest and will result in a conviction against you for the violation(s) and may report to your driving record.  There may be options available to you to avoid a conviction of the violation(s) such as with a Driving Safety Course or Deferred Disposition option. Some can be set up at the court service windows and some will require a court date. Visit our Driving Safety Course and Deferred Disposition pages for more information. 

If you wish to request a payment plan, you must submit a written request and your initial payment.  A Payment Plan request form is available on our Court Forms and Helpful Links page.  The form can be submitted by regular mail with a money order or cashier's check enclosed, in person, or via email at We accept all forms of payment except personal checks. Debit and credit cards are charged a small fee of 2.5% ($2.50 per $100 charge).  

Please contact the court for information at (936) 291-5476, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, if you have questions. 

Payments are accepted in the form of cash, money order, cashier's check, credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover), or debit cards bearing the Visa or Master Card logo.  Please note that a 2.5% transaction fee will be applied to all payments made by credit or debit card.
