COVID-19 Updates

Pasadena Municipal Court COVID-19 Department Update

 

On March 8, 2021, the Municipal Court reopened for in-person and virtual proceedings under guidelines previously approved by the Regional Presiding Judge and the Office of Court Administration.  Many proceedings, however, such as jury trials, will not begin until later in the year.  Please continue to monitor this web page for updated information.

In addition and subject to capacity limitations, you may 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.

All missed court dates are being rescheduled.  You 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:
