Smithville Municipal Court
Amendment Fees and Court Costs:
**Important Note: Amendment fees are rarely ever the same as the fine on your ticket or pay slip. Those amounts are "plead guilty" amounts. That is the amount the court will charge you to plead guilty to the citation as a moving violation and have it recorded against your driving record.
We are not pleading you guilty. We are having your ticket amended and therefore, court amendment fees replace the fines on your ticket or pay slip. For more information, read ticket costs - amendment vs guilty plea.
Amounts the Smithville Municipal Court
will require you to pay:
(these amounts include the court amendment fee and court costs)
Why is this amount different than the fine that may be on your ticket? Please read the Important Note above.
Most speeding tickets meeting the criteria above and minor traffic violations such as stop sign, illegal turn, signal or lane change will generally be assessed an amendment fee of $175 - $250 by the Smithville Municipal Court prosecutor depending upon how far over the speed limit you were cited as traveling or your specific infraction.
Therefore, that is an estimate of what the court will require. This is of course in addition to the attorney fee we receive for our services.
*If you have a "no seat belt" citation, that may be an additional amount to be paid to the court. It is not a moving violation.
*If you are 21 or under when your ticket was issued, please let us know.
*If you were cited with "no insurance" (failure to maintain financial responsibility) and actually had valid insurance for you on that vehicle on that day, we can have this ticket dismissed. Read more about no insurance tickets.
*If you were cited with DWS driving while suspended or driving while revoked, read more here.
