You may apply online at the link below or complete an Application for Payment Plan in person at the Hall of Justice, or you may contact the Collections department via email 60Collections@muskegoncounty.net and request an application be mailed to you. Once a fully completed application is received by the court, your payment plan will be sent to you within 3-5 business days. If additional information or instructions are required, the court will contact you by phone or email.
Generally, we strive to set up your payments at the level you request if possible. Some factors such as a direct order of the court, probation period, or your previous payment history with the court will affect the level your payment must be set at. For example, $800 is ordered by the court and a 12 month probation period is ordered; your minimum will be approximately $67 monthly.
A plan can be set up to be weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly (twice monthly on specific days of the month), monthly, or every specific number of days.
Generally a first payment must be made within 30 days of sentencing or default judgment date. We ask that you let us know when you can make the first payment; and we strive to set up your plan in that manner.
You will be expected to pay as much as you can and contact the Collections staff to discuss what can be done. If you are able to pay the full payment within a week or two, we will make a note to that effect on your case(s). Past due status and notices will still go out until plan is current again.
You may make your payment in person at the District Court Records windows M-F 8:30 to 4:30; please bring a copy of your plan with you. A drop box is also available outside the court house in the parking area near the flags; make sure to print your name & phone number on the envelope provided and include the case number you are paying; remember to pay the cases in the order the collections department gave you. Mail payments to payable to the 60th District Court, 990 Terrace St, Muskegon MI 49442; again include your name, phone number & Case number. You may pay online using a credit or debit card to may payments with the link below; make sure you include your case number. Finally, you may call 1-888-604-7888, using pay location code 7225 and have your case number available. All credit card payment are subject to a third party fee.
If a judge gives you a specific order to pay, the collections staff cannot override that order. We suggest you pay as ordered. If unable to do so due to unforeseen circumstances; pay as much as you can by the date ordered and write a letter to the judge requesting additional time to pay or report to the Records window and request to see the judge concerning additional time to pay.
Make a payment immediately of at least $50 and contact the Collections department in person, by phone 231-724-6334, or via email 60Collections@muskegoncounty.net to get further information and discuss payment plan possibilities.
We can still set a payment plan, however you will probably be required to make a minimum payment first, since your case must be past due in order for your license to have been suspended. The suspension(s) will remain in place until the full balance on the cases and/or tickets with suspensions are paid in full. You will receive a clearance card for each paid in full case or ticket and an electronic release will be generated to the Secretary of State.
