How long do I have to pay my fines and costs to the court?

By statute you can have up to 30 days to pay your fines and costs.  You must ask the Judge for time to pay; the Judge can even give longer than the 30 days.  It requires an extra fee but it allows you the time you need to take care of the fines and costs.  If you cannot pay it by the date the Judge has ordered, you can go back to court and request more time to pay.  However, if you do not pay on time then the court will relay this to Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and DMV will suspend your license.  So if you need more time, make sure to have your attorney request time from the Judge.  Whatever date the Judge gives you, pay on time so you do not lose your license.
