Do I Have to Appear in Court?

Many tickets do not require a court appearance & may be paid on or before your court date. Other tickets require a court appearance. This includes DWI, appearance agreements, cash or surety bonds posted, and other charges or scenarios.

Please contact the court to determine if you are required to appear in person.


All proceedings involving defendants 17 & younger are mandatory court and the defendant must appear with a parent or guardian on the date scheduled.

Failure to Appear Warning:

If you fail appear in court for any mandatory court hearings, a warrant for your arrest (on the charge of Failure to Appear) will be issued. If that happens, your driver’s license could be suspended and you could incur additional fines, costs and/or jail time.
