Orange County Superior Court - News Release: Court to Implement an Ability-to-Pay Online Tool

Santa Ana, CA – The Orange County Superior Court is introducing the Ability to Pay (ATP) Program. MyCitations is an online application that offers individuals the option to request a reduction for their infraction citation, particularly in cases where there is financial need. The new application will be available on June 27, 2024.

MyCitations was developed and is maintained by the Judicial Council of California. The application allows low-income individuals with infraction violations to request a reduction in their fines and fees without going to the courthouse. Users can also request a payment plan, more time to pay, or community service.

The application will also allow individuals to enter a plea of guilty or nolo contendere and resolve a qualifying citation electronically if a mandatory appearance is not required. Additional information will be posted on the court website on June 27, 2024.
