Welcome to the Findlay Municipal Court on-line payment center. You may choose to pay a traffic citation, post bond/bail, pay your court fines and costs, or pay on a civil case. We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Amex and all Debit Cards.
PAYMENT OF CITATION WITHOUT COURT APPEARANCE (WAIVERS)
Ohio law allows certain traffic citations to be resolved by a Traffic Violations Bureau instead of appearing in Court. If your citation qualifies, payment can be made either in person, by mail, or now online, as long as it is received by the Clerk’s office prior to the court date and time which can be found on the bottom of your citation. You must pay the full amount, Ohio law does not allow partial payments on waivers. WAIVER PAYMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER YOUR COURT DATE.
PROOF OF INSURANCE
Proof of insurance is a State of Ohio requirement. To verify that you showed proof of insurance to the Law Enforcement Officer that cited you, refer to the Case Information Tab and proceed to Find a Traffic/Criminal Case. Once you have located your case, you will find the indicator for Proof of Insurance.
If “Yes”, then you have complied with the State of Ohio requirements, no further action on your behalf is required. If “No”, the Court is required to notify the State of Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles who in turn will mail you a request for proof of insurance. Failure to comply will result in a suspension of your driving privileges. DO NOT SEND PROOF OF INSURANCE TO THE COURT AFTER PAYMENT.
IF YOU'RE PAYING A TRAFFIC TICKET
By submitting your information to request payment, you understand that you are pleading “Guilty” to all charges against you as listed on the citation, consequently waiving your right to an appearance in court or to a trial. You further understand that when processed, this will close your case and the Court will forward this information to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the appropriate points will be added to your driving record.
