Justice Court handles traffic offenses and misdemeanor criminal offenses issued by the Cascade County Sheriff's Office, Montana Highway Patrol, or Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks; as well as Orders of Protection, small claims up to $7,000, and civil claims up to $12,000.
Citations from the Great Falls Police Department are handled by the Great Falls Municipal Court in the basement of the Civic Center.
You may now pay for traffic citations from the Montana Highway Patrol online. There is a 5% fee charged by CitePay that is not collected by the county. You cannot use this option for existing balances.
The Court is more than willing to help, but cannot give out legal advice.
