Municipal Court


The mission of the North Richland Hills Municipal Court is to serve its citizens and guests within the community, in a courteous, efficient and professional manner. The court and its officers are dedicated to the principles of fair and impartial justice administered with respect and equality.

Plea & Payment

If you feel that you are guilty, or you do not wish to contest the charges alleged against you, a standard fine for the offense may be paid. The court offers a number of convenient payment options. Other options are also available for traffic offenses.

Trial Request

If you feel that you are not guilty of the offense as charged, you must appear before the Municipal Court Judge. If you wish to have a trial before the judge, it is necessary that you request a court date in person or in writing from the Municipal Court. You will be scheduled a date to return for your Municipal Court Trial. Verbal telephone requests will not be accepted. All requests must be made in person or in writing.
