Methods of Payment

Please wait at least 3 business days to allow your citation to be processed prior to contacting the court regarding costs or other payment information.
  • Certain citations may be paid without appearing in court. For such cases, payment must be received by the court office on or before your court date. If you wish to enter a plea of guilty in person, the citation may be paid only by the person who received the ticket. Picture identification will be required with every transaction. Cash, money order, cashier's check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover will be accepted in person at the magistrate's office. There is a 3.5% convenience fee if the citation is paid with a debit or credit card at the payment window. Please be advised that debit and credit cards must have the cardholder's name printed on the card and must be accompanied by the cardholder. The cardholder must present picture identification.
  • Payment may also be mailed for certain citations. You may mail a cashier's check or money order made payable to Pelham Municipal Court to:
    P.O. Box 1419
    Pelham, AL 35124
  • Payment may be made online at Citation Payments. Once on the website, select Pelham Municipal Court and then click payment. The citation number located on the top right hand corner of your citation, including the letter in front of the 7-digit number, will be required for online payment. There is an 8.5% convenience fee if the citation is paid online.
  • No personal or business checks will be accepted in person or by mail.
