In-Person Municipal Court Sessions Canceled Until Further Notice

­­

During the COVID-19 pandemic, municipal courts have cancelled their in person court sessions. With the use of technology, certain cases may be able to be heard and adjudicated remotely. It is advised that you contact the court to set up a video court proceeding and provide your telephone and email address.

Municipal courts will continue to handle certain matters, such as applications for temporary restraining orders, hearings where a defendant has been detained, and matters that implicate public safety.

Filings and payments will continue to be accepted, except where the municipality had closed the municipal court building. Defendants also may continue to make payments through the municipal court online payment system at NJMCDirect.com.

Updated information about municipal court closures is available at njcourts.gov.
