We’ve revised and reprinted If You Can’t Pay Your Court Fine on Time. The brochure now has a new design and minor revisions to the content. It explains in plain language what to do if you cannot pay a court fine on time. It covers the three possible options: paying part of the fine by the due date, asking for an extension, and asking for jail time. The brochure also explains what happens if a court fine is not paid and shows how to calculate the length of the jail term.
If you still have copies of the old brochures, please discard them. Minimum wage has increased since we last printed, so the old brochure is misleading.
