Deferred Disposition

Deferred Disposition - in Person, Electronically, or by Mail

Deferred Disposition is an option that will keep your citation from being reported as a conviction on your driving record and will be dismissed if all terms required are successfully met. If any requirements are not met and you cannot provide a satisfactory reason why at a hearing before a judge, you will be found guilty and a conviction will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety. 

Please Note: Not all violations are approved for Deferred Disposition.

The Court Clerk may process requests for Deferred Disposition ("Deferred") from a Defendant or his or her attorney at the Court Clerk’s window and may complete paperwork for the Judge’s signature if the defendant meets the eligibility requirements set forth below. Defendants not meeting said eligibility requirements may present their request for Deferred to the Court by setting the case on the Court’s "First Appearance," "Attorney Plea," or "Pre-Trial" docket.
