Welcome from Piatt County Circuit Clerk Laurie A. Birch

E-Pay is designed to make the disposition of your No Appearance traffic ticket a simple and convenient procedure.

Transactions must be completed 5 business days prior to your court date or you will be required to appear in court.

This service will make it easier for you to make the required payment on No Appearance traffic tickets.  You may use your MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Card (credit or debit card with the aforementioned logo), which will save you an unnecessary trip to the courthouse and avoid lost time from work.

If you are paying a No Appearance traffic ticket you must sign and send the original Plea of Guilty (blue copy of citation) to the Circuit Clerk's Office within 3 days after this transaction.  We will accept the signed original Plea of Guilty through the mail.

Please mail the signed blue plea of guilty form to the address below:

Piatt County Circuit Clerk, Attn:  Acct. Dept.  E-Pay, P. O. Box 288, Monticello, IL 61856

Please allow 5-7 business days for the mailed form to arrive in our office.  Faxed forms will not be accepted.  Your transaction will not be considered complete until the original form is received.

 New Service Fee Pricing: All credit cards will include a service fee of 2.35% or $1.00 minimum. The fee is NOT charged or collected by the Piatt County Circuit Court Clerk.

For the convenience of our customers without internet access or who are in the courthouse and need to make court ordered payments, a public access terminal will be available for their use in the Circuit Clerk's office on the second floor.

Thank you for your payment!
