Municipal Court


The Municipal Court has original jurisdiction over all:
  • Motor vehicle matters
  • Disorderly person complaints
  • Fish and game violations
  • Weights and measure complaints
  • Local ordinance violations
Domestic violence matters and restraining orders often are initiated in the Municipal Court, where the Judge is on call 24 hours a day.


Many motor vehicle violations, unless serious, can be paid directly through the Municipal Court Violations Bureau at 360 Route 202 or online at NJMCdirect, the New Jersey Municipal Courts website.
