Make a Payment

If your citation has been filed with the court, you may pay your fine online. There are no additional convenience fees.

To pay online start with your case number, citation number, or name.

If you do not wish to pay online or if you wish to pay before your citation has been filed with the court, you can also pay in any of the following ways:

  1. Mail your fine payment to the Milwaukee Municipal Court, 951 North James Lovell Street, Milwaukee, WI 53233. If you pay by mail, do not mail cash. Make checks and money orders payable to the Milwaukee Municipal Court. Please be sure to include your citation number or case number with your payment.

  2. Pay by credit card by phone. Call (414) 286-2878 from 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday.

  3. Pay in person. At the Municipal Court, go to the Cashier Window. The hours are 8:00am - 4:30pm, Monday through Friday. You may pay by cash, check, money order or VISA or MasterCard.

Payment Extensions

If your payment due date is approaching and you need more time to pay get an extension. Make a minimum payment of at least $20 and the court will automatically grant you more time to pay. Note: Building and zoning cases require a $50 minimum payment for an extension.

I'm Past My Due Date

Court fines not paid on time will result in alternatives being put in place. Alternatives may include driver’s license suspension, vehicle registration denial, collections action, and warrants.

Alternatives are lifted when the fines are paid in full. Once paid in full, the court notifies the appropriate agency electronically overnight. (This most commonly includes notifying the Wisconsin DOT.)

If you case has been assigned to a collection agency, you may pay your fine either through the court or through the collection agency.

30% Payment

If you have a driver’s license suspension or a vehicle registration denial in place and you cannot pay your fines in full, you may qualify for the 30% Payment option. Pay 30% of the balance due on you case(s) and the court will lift the suspension or denial and grant you time to pay. For specifics on this option call the court payment line or visit the court during normal operating hours to talk to a representative.
