Payment Information

There are three ways to pay for your citation: in person, by mail, or online. Please note that payment in full constitutes a plea of "no contest" or "guilty" and will result in a reported conviction to the State.

Pay in Person

An individual may appear at the Court Clerk’s Window during the business hours listed on the citation on or before the court date assigned to enter a plea, and pay the fine and costs/fees. (Juveniles must appear with a parent or legal guardian on the date assigned by the citation or summons)

The Court Clerk’s Window is able to accept the following forms of payment for non-warrant payments: cash, money order, personal check (pre-printed address only), cashier’s check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and Diners Club card.

Pay Online

An individual may enter a plea of “no contest” or "guilty" on or before the court date assigned and pay the fine, and cost/fees on this Web site, by completing an online payment form. Payment can be made with MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and Diners Club card.

Pay by Mail

Make the cashier’s check, personal check or money order out to City of Farmers Branch (DO NOT MAIL CASH) and mail the citation and payment to Farmers Branch Municipal Court, 3723 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas, 75244. Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before the court date assigned on the citation. Personal checks are not accepted on warrants.

Payment Plans

The court offers payment plans to defendants who wish to plead no contest or guilty on their citation. Payment options for cases which have not been delinquent may appear in person at the court clerks window to begin a payment plan with $100.00. Payments of $100.00 are due each month until all the fines and costs are paid. Please note you must appear to set up your payment plan and then your payments may be made online from that point forward.

If a defendant needs additional time to make the first payment, an appearance must be made in court at the scheduled date and time listed on their citation.


Failure to appear or pay the citation by the court date assigned will cause the incurring of additional fines, fees and costs. The individual may be charged with a separate offense of Failure to Appear, which carries a maximum penalty of $500. A warrant will be issued for the individual’s arrest and may result in the loss of driving and vehicle registration privileges.
