The information below addresses frequently asked questions.  Visit www.vermontjudiciary.org for additional information.

CONTINUANCE OF A SCHEDULED HEARING:  A request for continuance of a scheduled hearing must be submitted to the court in writing, include the compliant number, hearing location, hearing date, and the name of the person requesting the continuance.  The reason for the request must be specific and include supporting documentation.  Mail, fax or email your request to one of the addresses noted above.  If you do not receive a decision on your request prior to the scheduled hearing, the hearing will go forward as scheduled. 

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS:  Go to www.Vermontjudiciary.org to pay a Vermont Civil Violation Complaint or Municipal Complaint.  The compliant number, defendant’s name, and an email address are required.  An online credit card payment will take up to three business days to reach the Judicial Bureau.  If your fine is due within the next three days, or your privilege to operate a motor vehicle is due to suspend within the next three days, please pay your fine in person at the Judicial Bureau in White River Junction.

EXTENSION OF TIME TO PAY A FINE:  An extension of time to pay a fine must be requested in writing prior to the due date and include a minimum payment of $30 per violation.  This privilege is not available for debts over $500; for debts that have been referred to collections; and will not stop the action on a debt that has been referred to the Tax Department.  Mail your written request with a check or money order to the Vermont Judicial Bureau.  Credit card payments are not accepted for an extension of time to pay.

SUSPENSION OF YOUR PRIVILEGE TO OPEARATE A MOTOR VEHICLE:  A debt owed the Vermont Judicial Bureau must be received by the court at least three business days prior to your suspension in order for payment to be processed, DMV notified, and compliance entered.

TAX OFFSET:  If you’ve received notice that your Vermont tax refund has been offset to pay a Vermont Judicial Bureau fine, an offset has already been processed by the tax department.  The court may not receive this offset for up to three weeks after your notice was mailed.  If you recently paid a fine and the offset creates an overpayment, a refund check will be processed approximately 30 days after the offset has been processed by the court.
