VIRTUAL COURT

In an effort to mitigate public exposure to Covid-19, Stafford Township Municipal Court will be conducting virtual court sessions. A virtual court session is a legal proceeding and is treated as if you were physically in the courtroom. The court is utilizing ZOOM to conduct our proceedings. If you wish to resolve your case virtually, you will not have to physically appear in court. The court is reaching out to parties with pending court dates. If you would like to reach out to us directly; please submit the Virtual Court Request.​​​ Please note you will also have an opportunity to speak to the prosecutor virtually on the day of court.​​

Before your court date
​​• You will receive an email asking you to register for the session. The email will be sent the week of your court date.

• If you don't already have Zoom downloaded to your smartphone, PC, laptop or tablet, please do so upon receiving your emailed court notice. This will avoid any delays on the day of court. You may contact the court in advance to schedule a test session.​

​​Day of Court​
​• Log onto the court session at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. This will allow you the opportunity to resolve any technical issues. Remember to click yes when you get a message from your electronic device asking for permission to access your camera and microphone. ​​• Please be in a quiet room to avoid background noise. If possible, use earphones to avoid any feedback.​​

• Upon entering the virtual courtroom, you will be in a waiting room and will remain in that room until your case is called. While in the waiting room, your video and microphone will be muted and will remain muted until your case is called.​
​• After you are admitted into the main room you will be put in a breakout room. You will wait in this room for the prosecutor to join the room to discuss your case privately. When you are done leave the breakout room not the meeting.​

• When your case is called, the court will unmute your mic​​ • Upon completion of your case, the judge will excuse you. Your video and microphone will once again be muted at which point you may leave the session. ​

After court
​ • Within 2 business days, the court staff will call or email you to provide you with information on how to make your payment. If a week has passed and you have not heard from us, please call or email the office to follow up.
