Bond Schedule, Waiver Schedule & Costs

victim

Certain traffic violations and criminal offenses can be waived allowing you to pay your fines and court costs without having to appear at court. Other violations require a court appearance under the law.

A waiver is admitting your guilt by signing the statement on the reverse side of the ticket, submitting a check or money order for the amount due and forwarding it to the Paulding County Municipal Court. This may also be done in person by visiting the Paulding County Municipal Court.

All violations require proof of insurance for the date of the citation. If your ticket is marked "FR NOT SHOWN" you must bring proof to court. Do not bring invoices or applications. You need an insurance card with effective dates for the car listed on the citation, or a copy of your insurance policy.

Failure to provide proof of insurance will result in a suspension of your license imposed by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles for a minimum of 90 days.
