COURT APPERANCE

If you are unable to appear on your scheduled court date you may request a onetime reset to be granted by the court. You should request this in person, however, due to Covid 19 you will be allowed to request this one time by phone or by email, hpcourt@hollywoodpark-tx.gov. If you fail to comply and appear to the agreed court date, it will result in a “failure to appear” violation and additional fees will apply. See General Information for more Covid 19 Municipal Court Requirements.

A TELEPHONE CALL DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A COURT APPEARANCE

  ***If you have not made your appearance before the Hollywood Park Municipal Court by the first Monday following ten (10) days after your scheduled appearance date, as noted on your citation or on a duly authorized reset form, the scheduled fine for that offense shall be increased to the maximum authorized fine for that offense.  The offense of Failure to Appear may also be imposed at the sole discretion of the Court.***
