Online Dispute Resolution
The City of Farmers Branch Municipal Court is excited to ring in a new era of innovation by expanding access to justice online. We have worked diligently to provide a fair, effective, and practical way to handle court matters from your phone, tablet or computer. We are pleased to offer you the convenience of online case review for the following types of cases:
Online TRAFFIC review:
Allows you to enter a plea of No-Contest or Guilty and correspond with the judge to take your situation into consideration. You may also enter a plea of Not-Guilty and tell your side of the story to the city prosecutor for a possible resolution or to set the case for trial. By resolving online, you can also request deferred disposition, a drivers safety course, a payment plan or even correct a “fix-it” ticket.
Online CODE ENFORCEMENT review:
Allows you to correspond with a code enforcement officer to ensure you understand your violation. It lets you upload proof that you have brought your property into compliance, and also allows you to request that your case be sent to the prosecutor for review and final adjudication of your case, preventing you having to go to court.
Online WARRANT resolution and review:
Allows you to clear your warrants and put yourself on the road to compliance, avoiding the expense and time you would risk being arrested. Whether you have a warrant that is 10 years old or brand new, we want to help you resolve it. You don’t have to be afraid as the system will guide you every step of the way without stepping foot into the Court.
Over the coming years we will continue to work with our technology partners to expand this “virtual court” to help our citizens resolve more types of court matters online.
Visit our Online Case Review Platform and search for your case to see if you are able to resolve the issue online.
