Paying by Mail
You may handle most transactions through the mail. To pay your fine by mail, send a check or money order (U.S. dollars) made payable to Butte County Superior Court any time prior to your appearance date. Send payment to the court listed on your courtesy notice. Write your docket number and the name of the person who received the citation on the check or money order to ensure proper credit. Please be sure that we have your current mailing address so that we can respond to you in a timely manner, if necessary.

Requesting a Payment Plan
If you are unable to pay your fine all at once by your appearance date you may request an installment payment plan by contacting the Traffic Division (see your Courtesy Notice to determine which court to contact). Please note that a 10% down-payment of the total amount due must be paid at the time the payment plan is established (VC 40510.5). In the event that a payment plan is established, a $35.00 fee will be assessed.

Work Program
You may be eligible to perform work program hours to satisfy your fine. You must request this option and sign up in person at the Court Compliance office. There is an administrative fee for this service.
