Do you have a class C outstanding warrant and you want to setup a payment plan?
At any time you may appear at the City of Saginaw Municipal Court located at 333 W. McLeroy Blvd, Saginaw, TX 76179 during our business hours and you may establish a payment plan for your “Arrest Warrants” with NO money down and that will clear your arrest status. You may ONLY establish a payment plan for your “Capias Pro-Fine Warrants” by paying 25% of the total amount owed or $500, whichever is the lesser amount of the two, then your arrest status will be cleared.
If at any time you become unable to pay due to unexpected financial circumstances and your payment plan arrangement with the court has become a hardship to you, please notify the court in-person or in writing immediately. Once the court is notified the court will provide you with a referral to the Judge for Judicial review of your current situation to discuss other ways to discharge the fine and cost.
Alternatives to Full Payment of Fine or Cost
If you have been assessed a fine and court cost due to a citation and you are unable to pay: You are required to notify the court immediately, so that you can bring this matter to the attention of the Judge to review on a Judicial Hearing that is required for the Judge to discuss alternative ways to discharge your fine and court cost that has been assessed by the court.
