Traffic Infractions, Criminal Traffic, Misdemeanor, and Felony cases qualify for a payment plan.
For Traffic Infraction cases, a payment plan will only be accepted within 30 days from the issue date of the citation. For Criminal Traffic, Misdemeanor, and Felony cases, a payment plan may be entered into at any time after court costs/fines have been assessed.
For Traffic Infraction cases, payment plans will only be established for a 90-day period. Therefore, the minimum monthly payment will be one-third of the fine amount. For Criminal Traffic and Misdemeanor cases, the minimum monthly payment is $50. For Felony cases, the minimum monthly payment is $75.
Upon entering into a payment plan, a suspension clearance letter will be issued for your driver's license, as long as all other ticket requirements have been met (i.e, proof of insurance, proof of valid driver's license, proof of registration).
Each case will be assessed a $25 one-time administrative processing charge to establish the plan, which must be paid before entering into the plan. In addition, if a driver's license suspension clearance letter is required, the required fee must be paid before entering into the payment plan.
Yes. Multiple cases may be consolidated into a stacked payment plan.
Payments will be applied to the newest case first until it is paid in full. The payments will then be applied to the next case in order until all cases are paid in full.
A payment plan will be defaulted if the monthly payment is not paid within 5 days of the due date. Once a plan has been defaulted, a financial obligation suspension of your driver's license will be processed on the case. In order to clear the suspension, all court-related fees, service charges, costs, and fines must be paid in full on the defaulted case. If you default on a stacked payment plan, you will be defaulted in all cases. Once a payment plan has been defaulted you will not be allowed to enter into an additional payment plan on that case.
