La Marque Municipal Court recently expanded services to offer virtual court for defendants. Participants need internet access and a computer or mobile device with a camera and microphone. Call 409-938-9245 for information on your specific case.

La Marque Municipal Court has been operating throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and recently expanded services to offer virtual court for defendants. Court dates were extended, but the new service is available by request for folks who prefer to address a case now, rather than at a future date. 

La Marque Municipal Court held its first virtual court on April 28, 2020. A virtual court facilitates an online hearing with the defendant and prosecutor or judge. To request a virtual court date, contact Court Administrator Rosemary Bell at r.bell@cityoflamarque.org. Participants need internet access and a computer or mobile device with a camera and microphone.

"We know this is a difficult time for many, and the court does not want to concern over citations or court dates to add to individuals’ burdens, "said Bell. "We have staff members in the office each day to answer questions by email and phone and to process defendants’ payments to help them move to close out their cases."

Contact the La Marque Municipal Court at 409-938-9245 for information on your specific case.
