COMMUNICATION REGARDING THE  CONTINUATION OF OPERATIONS OF THE MUNICIPAL COURT DURING THE COVID-19 SITUATION ISSUED BY HON. FRANCESCO TADDEO, J.M.C.

Hillsborough, Montgomery and Manville Municipal Court will commence virtual Court proceedings the week of May 4, 2020.  It is your responsibility to contact the Court and address your court matter.  Please contact the Court and provide them with your email address and home and/or cell phone number. You will be contacted by the Court and provided a time that the Court will contact you for a virtual Court proceeding.  This includes first appearances and entry of pleas.  

 Given the current circumstances, all in person sessions have  been suspended until further notice.  Defendants will be notified by mail or by phone of a new court date. Please contact the court if your contact information or mailing address has changed. (908) 369-3532.

 Many traffic matters can still be paid online at www.njmcdirect.com.  Many motor vehicle violations can be handled via mail without the necessity of a court appearance. Please contact the court to determine whether or not your court matter may be eligible for this type of plea by mail hearing.

Also, certain violations may be amended via the "Online Dispute Resolution" system. Simply log on to www.njmcdirect.com and enter your ticket information, then click "Dispute this Ticket". You will need to create an account. This will allow you to amend your ticket and have it approved by the Prosecutor and Judge without making a court appearance. See the list below for the offenses that can be handled this way.

The Court Office is currently open during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm. There is also a drop box located outside the Court Offices for payment and other correspondence to be left for the Court.  Please call the court directly if you require further assistance.
