How do I pay a Traffic Citation?

If you have received a traffic citation issued by Georgia State Patrol or the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office as the result of a traffic accident, this is a "Must See Judge" offense.  Therefore, you must appear in court on the date listed on your traffic citation. Failure to appear before the Judge on the date indicated on your citation could result in your license being suspended or a bench warrant being issued. These citations can NOT be paid online. 

In most situations, if your citation is NOT a "Must See Judge" offense, your citation should be available to pay online in approximately 14 - 21 business days from the date you received your citation.  If you are unable to access your citation online, please call the Forsyth County State Court Clerk's office at 770-781-2120 option #3, Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. for assistance. 

There are various ways to pay for Traffic Citations:

  • You may pay in person at the Forsyth County State Court Clerk's Office.  Their office lobby hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
  • You may Pay Citation Online;
  • You may pay via Phone-pay by dialing 770-781-2120 and following the prompts;
  • You may pay by mailing payments directly to the Clerk's office.  Please visit their website or contact their office for specific instructions for mailing your payment. 

How do I submit an Open Records Request?


Prior to making a request for open records, citizens and entities should familiarize themselves with the Georgia Open Records Act, specifically O.C.G.A. § 50-18-72 which specifies what types of public disclosure are not allowed, and O.C.G.A. § 50-18-71 which details the costs expected to be recovered by the County for Open Record requests requiring  searching, retrieval, redaction and coping of documents. This section also includes requests fulfilled by the County, but not paid for by the person(s) or entity making the request.

The Forsyth County Solicitor-General’s Office is NOT the custodian of records relating to criminal cases.

For criminal case records please direct your requests to:

Sheriff's Office
