If you are a juvenile, 16 years of age or younger, you must appear before the Judge in person with your parent or guardian. You must call the court on or before the appearance date on your citation to schedule a time to speak with the judge. Juveniles who fail to appear or who fail to pay their fine will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety who will suspend their driver's license. If they do not have a driver's license, they will not be able to obtain one until they appear in Court.
You and your parent are required by law to provide the Court, in writing, your current address and residence. If your place of residence changes, you have 7 days to notify the Court, in writing, of your new address and residence. Failure to keep the Court informed of your new residence may result in Failure to Notify charges filed against both you and your parent or guardian. The obligation of keeping the Court informed of your current address and residence is required until your case is finalized.
