Madera Court to offer online payment
As part of the Judicial Council of California’s ongoing effort to increase access to justice, Madera County becomes the newest California court to begin using the MyCitations – Ability to Pay Tool, which is an online option for people struggling to pay fines related to traffic and other infractions.
A U.S. Federal grant was awarded to the Judicial Council of California for the development and implementation of MyCitations.
Madera County Superior Court is one of many courts to offer the tool that conveniently allows court users to look up citation information online, answer a series of questions and submit a request to the court for a possible reduction in the amount owed based on their financial situation. Users of the tool can also request a payment plan, more time to pay, or community service.
