The City of Abilene Municipal Court

is a non-court of record and is the Judicial Branch of the city government. The Abilene Municipal Court conducts adult and teen court hearings and is dedicated to providing to all citizens, other departments and entities a fair independent, and impartial forum for handling fine only cases arising within the City limits of Abilene. The Municipal Court follows the procedures set forth under Texas Law and provides all persons the right to trial by judge or jury. Although every person has the right to be represented by an attorney, most citizens who appear in municipal courts represent themselves.

Please note: The court does not provide or give legal advice.
