How do I appear for court virtually?

Virtual court is held via Zoom. In order to appear for virtual court you must contact the court to provide your email address in order to receive the Zoom virtual court invitation. Invitations are sent out the Friday before the court date. You can email the court at court@southsideplacetx.gov or by phone at 713-668-2341.

When you log into the Zoom virtual court at your scheduled court time, you must set your display name to your full legal name so that the court can pull your file, otherwise your case will be called last. You must be connected with audio in order to hear and speak to the judge and prosecutors. Please also pay attention to your screen for individual invitations to move to a separate breakout room to speak to the prosecutors.
