Deadline Extended For Some Fines In Palm Beach County

Deadline extended for fines in Palm Beach County.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If you owe money from a traffic ticket or other legal matter, the Palm Beach County Clerk of Court's office is extending your deadline — but only if your money was due on Monday or Tuesday of this week.

Courts were closed as Tropical Storm Isaac impacted the area.

According to the Clerk's office:

Anyone required by law to pay a traffic ticket, file a notice of appeal or other court documents in criminal or civil courts such as family, probate and small claims while the Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller’s office was closed on Monday and Tuesday because of Tropical Storm Isaac has until 4 p.m. today to meet their deadlines.

Money that was due for deposit into the court registry, such as child support payments and rent, on Monday and Tuesday also can be deposited today by 4 p.m.

The Florida Supreme Court granted similar extensions to court-mandated deadlines after previous storm-related closings, such as after Hurricane Frances in 2004, and is expected to sign an order this week related to Tropical Storm Isaac.

For those who had court hearings on Monday or Tuesday, they will be notified by mail of a new hearing date.
