Anyone with questions should call the Court at (406) 552-6180.

 


01/10/2022 - Please note: due to changes made by a vendor that supports Montana courts' software, charges that have been available to pay online at citepayusa.com in the past may now require Defendants to speak with a Judge or Traffic Bureau Settlement Master before the balance can be addressed at Citepay. Citations may still be paid by mail if the charge(s) do not require a personal appearance. This situation is not expected to be permanent but may take some time to resolve. Please call the court if you have any questions regarding your options. Thank you.


  • If you do not contest the charge, most tickets can be addressed either by phone (406) 552-6180 or online at http://citepayusa.com without seeing a judge. It is the court's current  policy to defer for six months charges that are paid online. Please note that a phone call to the court is necessary after six months has passed from the day the ticket was paid in order for the charge to be dismissed and points removed from a driving record. If there are new violations within that six month period the charge will not be dismissed.
    • Payment agreements can be made by speaking with a court clerk by phone for most tickets.
    • Payments can be made through Citepay (www.citepayusa.com) , at the counter (Visa, MasterCard, cash, check, or Money Order), by mail, or by using the drop box in the hallway to the left of the doors into the counter area.  Please complete one of the envelopes provided.
  • Persons who received a citation with charges requiring an appearance before a judge should call or email the court. 
  • Persons who are required or choose to appear before a judge may do so during Open Court sessions which are held on Mondays 8:30 - 11:30, Tuesdays 8:30 - 11:30, Wednesdays 1:00 - 4:00, Thursdays 1:00 - 4:00, and Fridays 8:30 - 11:30 and 1:00 - 4:00. To appear during one of these sessions please call or come to the counter on the day you wish to appear. Open Court appearances cannot be scheduled in advance. These sessions often fill up quickly so it is recommended to contact the court shortly after the office opens at 8:00 AM. Persons who are required or choose to appear in person rather than via Zoom must check in at the counter for the appearance to be set. Only those appearing via Zoom may call the court to schedule an appearance.



Jury Trials

Every Thursday beginning at 8:00 AM, unless vacated


Thank you
