You can pay your ticket in one of three ways:
1. Visit the violations bureau located 29 N Park Street, Orange, NJ 07050.
2. Mail a certified check or money order with a copy of your ticket to the Violations Bureau using the same address (above).
3. Pay your ticket Online.
If your ticket is checked "Court Appearance Required" or the penalty amount is not listed at the bottom of your ticket you must appear in Court on the dates listed on the complaint. You may also check the amount by visiting the website listed on the back of the ticket. It will tell you if you need to appear in Court or can just pay the ticket.
If your ticket is not marked "Court Appearance Required", you may enter your plea of "Not Guilty" by either calling the Court at (973) 952-6315 or appearing at the Violations Bureau. Court staff will then schedule your case for a conference or a trial date depending on the charge.
Once you are assigned a court date, all requests for adjournments must be made in writing to the Judge. Adjournment requests can be mailed to Orange Municipal Court 29 Park St. Orange, NJ 07050, faxed to (862) 766-5294 or brought to the Violations Bureau. Your adjournment is not automatically granted by sending a letter. The Judge will review the letter and has ultimate discretion on whether a new court date will be granted.
For certain charges with consequences of magnitude such as (fines of $500 or more, loss of driving privilege, or incarceration) you may be eligible for the Public Defender if you are financially indigent. Judge will make the final decision on granting the Public Defender. If you can afford your own attorney, you can call either the Essex County Bar Association or the New Jersey Bar Association for referral. Court staff cannot recommend an attorney for you.
