Municipal Court Staff
Welcome to the New Jersey Courts
(Bienvenido a los tribunales de Nueva Jersey)
We will be happy to help you if we can. However, we are allowed to help only in certain ways, since we want to be fair to everyone in a case. This is a list of some things the court staff can and cannot do for you. Please read it carefully before asking the court staff for help.
We are an independent branch of government constitutionally entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes in order to preserve the rule of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States and this State.
Statement of Core Values
Required to accomplish our mission are four paramount values representing the core of what we stand for as an organization:
How to Appeal a Decision of a Municipal Court
(Cómo apelar una decisión de un juzgado municipal)
A pamphlet that shows you how to appeal a decision by the municipal court.
ADA / Interpreter - If you need the service of an interpreter, please notify the municipal court administrator, Joan Egan, prior to your court appearance.
Forms of Payment
Expedited Expungement - If you are charged with a disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense, or a municipal ordinance violations, and those charges are either dismissed, you are acquitted, or your case is discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt, you may be eligible for an expedited expungement pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6. For more information and to determine if you are eligible, you may inquire with the municipal court at the time of disposition.
Mediation - Mediation is a confidential, structured, non-adversarial process that allows a neutral third party to assist disputing parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution. The mediation process can be a less expense, informal, and more meaningful alternative than the traditional trial process. This is because of the efforts of trained volunteers and the resolution being decided by the participants. The court will refer appropriate cases to mediation.
