Payment Extension or Payment Plans
If you cannot afford to pay, you must go to a court location to request an extension or payment plan to pay fines. Only the individual who received the violation can request for extension or payment plan. Payment plans will be assessed an additional $25 fee for each violation. If payment plan or extension has been granted anyone else can make payments to your account, but the responsibility is still on the defendant to make payments in a timely matter.

Before an extension or payment plan is granted, a Time Payment or Extension Application Form (PDF) must be completed. Entire form must be filled out and all information on the application is subject to verification by the court. If any information submitted is found to be false, the application will be denied.
