Fort Worth’s Municipal Court has launched virtual courtrooms, adding to its catalog of e-services. This new feature allows the public to see a municipal judge from almost anywhere by way of a computer, tablet or smartphone.

“Court on Demand is another opportunity for the Fort Worth Municipal Court to serve our community. It is our hope that many will take advantage of this opportunity,” Chief Judge Danny Rodgers said.

The public can appear remotely to perform many court functions, including entering pleas, requesting payment plans, community service, compliance dismissals, driver’s safety course, deferred disposition (probation) and others.

All that is required is a stable internet connection, a video device with a microphone and a working email address. This will allow residents to receive and sign documents electronically.

“This continues building on our goal to meet the public where they are in the community, both in-person and online,” Interim Court Director William F. Rumuly said.

Request a virtual courtroom appearance by calling 817-392-6700 or visiting the municipal court webpage. Select the “Let’s Chat” icon 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
