Kent County District Courts announce Warrant, Traffic and Parking Tickets Waiver Program | 9/6/2017
The Kent County District Courts recently announced a new waiver program for anyone with outstanding criminal and traffic warrants for non-compliance with a court order of fines, fees, court costs and any outstanding traffic and parking tickets in default or suspension. This new waiver program will be in effect October 1 through October 31.
The Courts 
will waive all court-imposed late fees and warrant fees except for the $45 License Suspension Reinstatement Fees, and guarantee those who make payment in full will not be incarcerated. An individual can avoid jail if they make a significant payment with an approved plan to pay the remaining balance. Suspension will not be lifted until paid in full. 
Courts will accept cash, money orders or cashier’s checks. No personal checks will be accepted. Payments can be made by contacting the above courts.
This new Kent County District Court’s waiver program is an opportunity for citizens to comply with court orders by settling their debts without further penalty or incarceration.
You can call the 62-B District Court at 616.698.9310 for more information about the program.
