Garland Municipal Court Offers Warrant Resolution Drive with Discounts and No FeeGoogle Maps

In a bid to clear the decks on outstanding warrants, Garland Municipal Court is offering a respite for violators looking to make good with the law. From March 4th through the 8th, individuals with active outstanding warrants can wipe the slate clean by taking part in the court's warrant resolution drive. This initiative provides a chance for those in arrears to approach the courts without the usual $50 warrant fee and with a sweetened pot—a 20% discount on fines if paid in full during the drive.

According to details released by GarlandTX.gov, hoping to benefit from the deal must appear in person at the clerk’s window during the specified period. Additionally, for those preferring to present their case directly to the bench, a Walk-In Docket is available from 8:30 to 11 a.m. or 1 to 3 p.m. on the last day of the drive, Friday, March 8. Anyone attending the session can speak directly to a judge about their case.

The court is going all out to accommodate differing financial situations. Aside from accepting cash, checks, and credit or debit cards, there are alternatives for those unable to pay the fine and costs in full. For instance, payment plans or community service options could be available, providing manageable ways for individuals to clear their obligations with the court's administration.

The resolution drive is happening at the Brad Neighbor Municipal Court, which is on 1791 W. Avenue B, an attempt to not only clear the backlog of cases but also provide a path forward for those feeling the weight of unresolved legal issues. For additional information or questions regarding the process and eligibility, the court is reachable at 972-205-2330 or through their website.
