Many municipal court sessions are being conducted virtually/remotely to minimize exposure to COVID-19.  Accordingly, all complainants, defendants, attorneys, victims are to contact the municipal court at 201-796-1457 x603 at least 7 days prior to your scheduled court date to provide your full name, e-mail address, and cell phone number.  You will receive a Zoom link approximately 5 days prior to your court date.

*Please note if your case involves a consequence of magnitude (i.e. license revocation, high fine, jail time), you may be eligible for an in-person court session.  Additionally, if you are having technical issues or lack the proper equipment to participate in a virtual format, kindly reach out to the court and we will place you on an in-person calendar.

Refer to the Borough website for any unplanned closures.  In said event, your case will be relisted automatically.
