Municipal court sessions will remain virtual until further notice. If you have a pending matter that you would like to schedule please contact the court at (609) 361-6661 to provide your email address and phone number.
PLEASE FULLY READ ALL OF THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO JOIN THE VIRTUAL COURT SESSION.
Prior to your court appearance:
- You are required to watch the “Official Municipal Court Opening Statement” prior to entering virtual court by clicking on the link to the right below COURT SESSION INFORMATION. You can watch this at any time. The Judge will ask you if you have done so. By joining the virtual court session you are certifying that you have watched the Opening Statement.
- Once you have watched the Opening Statement you may enter virtual court by clicking on the Zoom Meeting link listed in COURT SESSION INFORMATION.
You will be able to speak to with the prosecutor once you are admitted to the virtual court room. Please be patient, as the Prosecutor will need to speak with everyone scheduled. After you speak with the Prosecutor, you will then be admitted back into the virtual courtroom to speak with the Judge. Please do not call the court office once the court session begins, as we will not be able to take your calls at that time.
