Municipal Court

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The Borough of Fort Lee Municipal Court sessions will be conducted remotely to minimize exposure to COVID-19. Individuals scheduled to appear before the municipal court can have their matter reviewed by submitting a plea by mail form found under forms. Accordingly, all complainants, defendants, attorneys, victims are to contact the municipal court via email here or at 201-592-3500 x1509 to provide your full name, e-mail address and cell phone number within seven days of a court notice.

There is a drop box at the entrance of the rear of the Municipal building (309 Main Street) to drop off a payment. Please make sure the envelope is marked Borough for Fort Lee Municipal Court. If you would like a receipt please include a self addressed envelope. Please do not put cash in the drop box.

Question about your ticket?

Please wait for 3 to 5 business days from receiving your ticket before calling, to permit adequate time for processing.

Payments

Payments are due by the date at the bottom of the Summons. Please read the back of your summons - the date on the bottom of your ticket is not necessary for your court date. If you are not sure, please contact the Court. If you would like a receipt for your payment, you must send us a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

You can pay your ticket online through our NJMCDirect portal.
