Clerk of the Superior Court
Beginning June 1, 2021 and until further notice, court participants and visitors are asked to wear a mask or face covering when entering the courthouse based on current CDC guidelines. In addition, the court will continue the COVID-19 health screening protocol. Any person who refuses to cooperate with or does not pass established screening protocols will be excluded from entering the courthouse. If the excluded person is attempting to attend a scheduled court proceeding, the court will be notified of the person’s inability to enter the courthouse. If the person has an attorney, they will be directed to call their attorney to request further information.
Payment options continue to exist for those not wanting to enter or travel to the courthouse. Customers wishing to make payments for court fines/fees may mail in their payments, make their payment online at http://azcourtpay.com or https://wmq.etimspayments.com/pbw/include/arizona/newinput.jsp or http://www.coconinoclerkpayments.com, pay at a PayNearMe vendor, or call the court to make other arrangements for payment.
