A defendant with an established payment plan must speak directly to a judge in regards to any request for extension or changes to their court ordered payment plan. These "walk-in" times are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-10:00 a.m. & Monday-Thursday, 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. You must appear ON OR BEFORE the date your fines/court costs are due.
Unscheduled matters ("walk-ins") will be heard after scheduled matters Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. and Monday-Thursday, 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. If you missed a first appearance/arraignment that was scheduled for 9:00 a.m. and you have not received a warrant or department of revenue notice in the mail, please come in during the next 9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. arraignment time to address your issue. If you failed to appear for a 9:00 a.m. first appearance/arraignment and have received a warrant or department of revenue license suspension notice, the Monday-Friday 9-10:00 a.m. or Monday-Thursday 1:00-2:30 p.m. times apply. Failure to appear at any scheduled court date or time will result in the issuance of a warrant for your arrest.
Yes, but the request must be made in court BEFORE your court date. Times to appear and request a continuance are Monday-Thursday at 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. before your court date.
With the exception noted above on "showcause/payment" warrants, you can neither have a warrant removed nor post bond over the phone.
When the court date is continued, the judge may continue the bond until the case is resolved.
When the judge releases the bond, the defendant is required to produce a picture identification before the bond will be refunded.
When a defendant posts bond through a bonding company, the "surety" bond company will be released when the case is concluded. NOTE: Any fee paid on behalf of a defendant to the bonding company is between the defendant and the bonding company, not the court.
