Payment of Fines

Payment Arrangements

If your plea is "Guilty" or "No Contest" or you were found guilty after a trial, you can request 31 days to pay your fine and costs without being penalized with a $25.00 payment plan fee. After 31 days, the court is required to add the $25.00 payment plan fee to each case.

Failure to pay will result in a capias warrant issue for your arrest plus a $50.00 warrant fee added to each warrant. There will also be an additional $30.00 FTA Program fee if the court reports you to the Department of Public Safety for non-payment. You may also be denied renewal of your Texas Driver’s License.

Forms of Payment

The Stafford Municipal Court will accept only cash, checks, money order, and credit card in the form of Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, and Discover. There will be a convenience fee charged for credit card service. There are two options to make a payment:
