Important: No one from the court will ever contact you by phone and ask for payment or credit card information.
Please note, at this time, the Pay By Web system only can be used to pay balances owed on disposed cases. Disposed means you have been found or pleaded guilty on a criminal or traffic case OR there is a final judgment on a civil case. Payments typically will be posted within one business day.
(when paying AFTER your court date): Payments must be received within 30 days following your court date to prevent a time payment fee from being charged. Payments made in accordance with a court-approved payment plan are due on the agreed upon date. If the court has not received your payment within 30 days following your payment due date, your payment plan will be sent to debt collection and your Missouri income tax refund could be withheld to pay toward your balance due.
