    About the Justice Courts

    JP-Constable Precincts MapJP 4JP 3JP 2JP 7JP 6JP 5JP 1JP 8

    The Justice Court is commonly known as the “People’s Court”.

    There are eight Justice Courts in Tarrant County. The Justice Court is a trial court for both civil cases (jurisdictional limit is $10,000), and many different types of misdemeanor criminal cases. Your Justice Court Judge also serves as an Administrative Hearing Judge. Each Judge is elected to a four-year term by the voters in that precinct. 

    Finally, the most common question: Can I still get married by the Justice of the Peace?  Yes. Please contact the individual court for details and scheduling.
