Welcome to the Dayton Municipal Court
and Clerk of Court
Case Information Access Site!

The Court and Clerk of Court are proud to bring you this improved new tool via the Internet! With this Case Information search site you can monitor cases of interest from the privacy and comfort of your home or office. The data available on this site is updated in real time as events occur on each case. Please see our disclaimer regarding the use of this data.

Online Payments are here!

You can now pay fines and costs online with a credit card.
This does NOT include Probation fees at this time.

Note: a 3% Processing Fee (min. $3) will be charged for each payment made online.


By selecting the Online Payment Option, You acknowledge that:

      You are the Defendant and that you are pleading "Guilty" to all charges against you
      as listed on the citation/ticket;

      Your plea is a complete admission of guilt, waiving your right to an appearance in
      court or to a trial;

      After your online plea and payment is processed, your case will be closed and the
      Court will forward this information (Traffic Citations Only) to the Ohio Bureau of
      Motor Vehicles, who will add the appropriate points to your license;

      If your Traffic Citation indicated that you failed to show proof of insurance, your
      license will be suspended by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles unless you send
      proof of insurance for the date of the offense to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

*The above acknowledgements do not apply to photo enforcement violations. Payments for photo enforcement violations must be paid prior to your request for a hearing.

*If you are unsure of your rights, the effect of your plea, or need legal advice, you should consult an attorney before selecting this online payment option.

To pay your case online, click the Search button above on the left and use one of the available search methods to locate your case. If your case has a balance due and is eligible to be paid online, a "Pay Online" button will appear near the amount owed on the Case Summary page.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you verify that the case you are paying is the right one, so please be very careful when using this feature.

Once you click the Pay Online button, a summary screen will appear giving you another chance to verify that you have the correct case. Click the Pay button on that screen to enter your credit card information on our secure server.

If your payment is approved by the bank, a receipt will be the next page you see after submitting your payment. PRINT that page for your records. If you have a License Block at the BMV, allow at least 2 business days for processing before you go there to renew anything. The BMV charges $15 to remove the block.

If you have multiple cases, you will have to pay each one separately. Also, you must pay the entire amount owed on each case (no partial payments allowed).
