What do I do if I or my child has received a traffic citation?

If you are a resident of Williams County and received your ticket in Williams County you will receive a Notice of Hearing with a date and time to appear. The juvenile must appear with at least one parent or legal guardian for the hearing. Juveniles are not permitted to post bond for traffic offenses. The hearing is on the second floor of the Courthouse in the Juvenile Court.

If you are a resident of Ohio but not a resident of Williams County the ticket will be transferred to your county of residence.

If you are an out-of-state resident you will receive a Notice of Hearing allowing you to either appear in person or pay the fine and court costs without appearing. This option is only available to out-of-state residents.
