Q: I got a ticket, but there has not been a report filed to the court yet and my court is in 2 days, what happens now?
A: You will need to keep checking Missouri casenet online to see if the ticket has been filed. Once the ticket is filed, you will have to appear in court on the court date (either in person or virtually, depending on whether the court is having in-person court or virtual online court), or you can hire an attorney to represent you. In some courts in Missouri, it has been taking several months for tickets to get filed. So, even if you have a ticket with a court date printed on it, there is nothing you can do about it until it is filed.
