Fines and fees, if any, are due at sentencing unless a court order grants additional time to pay or a payment plan. If there is a good reason, the court may issue an order granting more time to pay. Before you are assessed a late payment fee or other penalty, you will be sent a notice. Some notices are required by law and some notices are a courtesy. Each notice may establish a new deadline date to pay the fine. If you pay the fine before the new deadline, you will not receive any additional penalties.
