Citation Payments


The Clerk of Superior, State, and Juvenile Court and office personnel makes every effort to record and publish the information in a timely manner to enable you to pay your traffic citation online. Citations are payable after they have been received from the Sheriff’s Office and processed by the Clerk’s Office, which normally takes 14-20 days after the issuance of citation. Please do not attempt to make contact prior to this timeline. IMPORTANT! All citations must be paid in full. Partial payments will not be accepted. Even if you have multiple traffic citations, all must be paid at one time.
