What happens once you have submitted your documents to court?
Once the court receives your documents, notifying the court you have requested to contest your ticket using a Trial by Written Declaration (TBD), the court will notify the officer to submit an explanation of the ticket by a given deadline. If the officer does not reply by this deadline the ticket is generally dismissed. Even if the officer replies by the deadline your case is still considered for a dismissal. The officer’s explanation of the ticket (called an officer’s declaration) is routed to the judge who will review it along with your written defense. The judge will then make his or her decision as to whether the ticket should be dismissed.
GETDISMISSED suggests that you mail your completed documents to the court using Certified Mail or FedEx so that your documents can be tracked and that there is confirmation that the court did in fact receive your documents.
If you chose to have your documents submitted to the court via:
The court will mail you the Notice of Decision within 30-90 days or longer. Sometimes the courts take longer than expected to reach a verdict, depending on how busy they are. If you do not receive this notice within that time frame, please contact your courthouse directly for a status update because only the courts will know the status. Some courts also make case status information available on their website.
