The Municipal Court has jurisdiction over juveniles (persons age 10 to 16) charged with a Class C misdemeanor offense. Juveniles must appear in open court with a parent or legal guardian present for all proceedings in their cases.
Obligation to Notify the Court of Address Change. A child and parent required to appear before the Municipal Court have an obligation to provide the court in writing with the current address and residence of the child. The child or parent must notify the court within one week of changing residence. The obligation to give notice ends on discharge and satisfaction of the judgment or final disposition not requiring a finding of guilt.
If you have questions about how to proceed with a juvenile case, please call the court office at (972) 624-2200 and ask for the Juvenile Case Manager.
