Can you tell me what the status is on a cause number?

Due to the volume of calls we receive daily, we are not staffed to answer calls of this nature from the general public. They are welcome to come to the office to look up the answer in the court file, or we will provide a certified letter for $10.00, either by mail or in person.  You may also try our online Judicial Search.

What do I need to do to get my driver's license reinstated?

This is really a question for DPS. The defendant is sometimes required by the court to take certain classes. If the requirement for the class is reported to DPS, but the defendant does not take the class or does not provide a certificate of completion, DPS will suspend the defendant's license. Sometimes, proof of completion of the course is all that is necessary. The defendant should call DPS if he/she does not know why his/her license has been suspended, or if he/she has any questions regarding reinstatement. This can get rather complicated and cannot be completely answered here.

Where do I make Probation payments?

Probation payments are made at the Probation Department.

Where is the Hot Check Department?

The Hot Check Department is located in the County Attorney's Office in the Williamson County Justice Center at 405 Martin Luther King in Georgetown.

What do I do if I don't have a lawyer?

The Judge will address this question when the defendant appears for his first court setting for an Arraignment Docket/First Appearance Docket, along with other information and instructions. It is important to be in the courtroom at the appointed time.

Can you tell me how to file my own court case?

We are not attorneys and are prohibited by law from giving any legal advice. We cannot give you instructions on filing your case or answer any questions on the accuracy of your papers or how to present your case to the judge. If you intend to represent yourself, without the assistance of an attorney, you must have the knowledge to prepare and file the proper pleadings and present your case to the court. We advise you to consult an attorney if you have any questions or are unsure as to what you need to do.

Where do I file an Occupational License? 

Occupational licenses are now filed through the Civil Section of the County Clerk's office for misdemeanor criminal cases. It is located on the second floor of the Williamson County Justice Center at 405 Martin Luther King in Georgetown.

How do I file an appeal from J.P./Municipal Court?

Appeals from lower courts must be filed in the lower court where the case originated.

Per Local Government Code 118.001, the charge for copies is $1.00 per page and a $5.00 charge for certification if the copies need to be certified.

I've moved to another county/state. Do I still have to report for jury duty?

No. The "qualifications" section of the jury card states that the prospective juror "must be a citizen of this State and County and qualified to vote." The potential juror would be disqualified for that reason. The individual still needs to return the jury card with the appropriate box checked.
