Justice of the Peace Standard Payment Plan

The day the court decides or completes your case is the same day you are required to pay court costs, fees and/or fines in full. If you cannot pay in full, enroll in the Standard Payment Plan.

  • Payments are tailored to allow the defendant to meet their financial obligation to the court without creating a financial hardship on the defendant, their dependents or household
  • Payments tiers are based on the balance owed
  • Payment amounts start at $50 a month. If this minimum can't be met, apply for the Ability to Pay Plan
  • Financial disclosure is not required for a Standard Payment Plan
  • Standard Payment Plans are continually monitored for compliance until the balance is paid in full
  • There will be a phone or an in person interview to discuss your payment terms

Apply in person

8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
