GALVESTON COUNTY COURTS
Texas City has two courts located here.  The Texas City Municipal Court, which handles class C
misdemeanors, violations of city ordinances and driver's license suspension hearings. The precinct
5 Justice of Peace Court of Galveston County is also located here, handling class C
misdemeanors, civil suits where the amount in controversy is up to $10,000, administrative
driver's license suspension hearings, and eviction cases..  Traffic tickets are class C misdemeanors.

Class B and Class A misdemeanors are handled by the County Courts at Law, located in
Galveston, Texas.  Besides, handling Class B and A misdemeanors, the County Court Courts at
Law handle cases in which the amount in controversy is between $500.00 and $200,000.00.   
The County  Courts 1, 2 and 3 also take appeals from justice of peace and municipal courts
located in Galveston County.  A new trial is given on these appeals.  It is called a trial de novo.

The district court has exclusive jurisdiction on felony cases, cases involving title to land, and
election contest cases.  It shares jurisdiction with the county courts, and in some case justice of
the peace courts, for civil cases (its lowest limit for hearing a case is a mere $200 in controversy,
while JP courts can hear cases up to $10,000). In a "catchall" provision it hears all cases "in which
jurisdiction is not placed in another trial court."

The 306th District Family Court of Galveston County handles only family related cases.  It shares
jurisdiction with county courts at law 1, 2 and 3 on family cases.

In addition to judicial powers, district judges also have administrative duties as well. District
judges may remove county officials, officials of a general-law municipality, and municipal court
judges, under certain circumstances. Also, they appoint and supervise the county auditor, oversee
the operations of the adult and juvenile probation offices, and are granted "supervisory"
jurisdiction over the county commissioners court.

Traffic ticket convictions can have negative driver's license privilege and
financial consequences.  If you license gets suspended because of too
many convictions you lose your privilege to drive.  If your license is
suspended you will have to pay a reinstatement fee before getting you
license back after the expiration of the suspension period.  Additionally,
your insurance company may raise your insurance premium substantially
for 3 years in Texas or may cancel your coverage altogether.  If you are
employed as a driver, you may lose your job, because you are a high risk.  
This is especially true if you have a commercial driver's license or CDL. If
you fail to pay the fine or appear in court, a warrant for your arrest may
be issued, along with a driver's license suspension, and an additional
charge of failure to appear for each violation.  So before you just pay
those tickets and get convicted, or fail to appear in court, contact us to
determine how we may be able to help.  If you have warrants, we may also
be able to help get those warrants removed.
