Municipal Court

For most people, a visit to court is an intimidating experience. The purpose of this website is to explain the function of the court and what to expect if you need to make a personal appearance before the judge.

Municipal court processes complaints filed against individuals who have been charged with traffic, local ordinance, or disorderly persons violations. Charges of a more serious nature, i.e., indictable charges are initially filed with the municipal court and are then forwarded to the Office of the County Prosecutor. There it is determined whether the case will be disposed of at the county level, or if it will be downgraded and returned to the municipal court for disposition.

If you have questions, feel free to call the court. Court staff will be happy to be of assistance.
