Motions Docket Appearance and Announcements

Use this to expedite your court appearance on motions settings for the ancillary docket.

The 506th District Court uses basically four types of settings for most criminal cases: status, motions, pretrial, and jury trial. For motions settings only, if you have no motions to present for consideration by the Court on the ancillary docket call, you may expedite your motions setting by filling out and presenting the form below. The Motions Docket Appearance and Announcements form does not waive your right to file motions at a later date. It merely allows you to expedite your court attendance on the ancillary docket day.

Please keep in mind that your client must be present with you in order to use this expedited method of appearance. It is best to arrive at least 15 minutes before docket call in order to get your form completed and turned in before docket call begins.

You may locally print the form from this website and bring it to court, or you may obtain the form on your arrival to the courtroom. In either event, once the form is completed, signed by yourself, your client and the Assistant District Attorney, turn in the completed form to the Court Coordinator.
