Fines & Rescheduling Court Dates


Many fines for traffic citations may be paid before the arraignment date shown on the citation. If you want to pay your fine before court, you may do so up to 72 hours before the assigned court date.

To determine the amount of the fine including surcharges and whether a fine may be paid before court, contact the Office of the Solicitor General at (706) 821-1220 or the Richmond County Sheriff's Office at (706) 821-1000.

Court Dates

Assigned court dates are rescheduled only under extreme circumstances such as the death or hospitalization of an immediate family member. If there is a possibility that you may miss your court date, you must contact our office at (706) 821-1220 as far in advance of your court date as possible.

If you miss a required court date, a bench warrant for your arrest will be issued.
