To make a payment on Fines and Cost, please click here or visit the Virginia’s Judicial System webpage.


To entered into a payment agreement please see guide listed below:

Payment Agreement for Collection of Court Costs and Restitution

Having been convicted, you are liable for the payment of Court Costs and, if Ordered, Restitution. You may petition the Court to make payments on fines/costs/restitution in these ways:


  1. 1. Installment Payment Agreement– you agree to pay a fixed monthly payment based upon your financial circumstances. Note:  failure to maintain a payment plan may result in Driver’s License suspension, along with additional interest and collection costs being assessed.


  1. 2. Deferred Payment Agreement – you agree to pay a down payment and have the balance of Costs and Restitution paid IN FULL by a specific date certain.


  1. 3. Modified Deferred Payment Agreement– you agree to pay a down payment and pay the balance of Costs and Restitution IN FULL by a specific date certain.   Between now and that date you will use your best efforts to make periodic payments.


Defaulting on your payment agreement will require the following down payment to begin a new payment agreement:   If the fines and costs owed are $500 or less, 10% of amount owed or if the fines and costs owed are more than $500, 5% of that amount or $50, whichever is greater.

The opportunity to pay Court Costs (not Restitution, interest or collection fees) by performing “community service” may be arranged through your Probation Officer.  Note: work performed as part of a Court-Ordered program will not qualify.  Check with your Probation Officer.

All monetary payments are first applied to Restitution and Restitution Interest until satisfied and then applied to Court Costs.  If Restitution is Ordered to be paid “jointly and severally” with another Defendant, then each Defendant is under the obligation to pay the entire balance.

Please contact my office (757) 365-6233 if you have any questions.  You need to enter into a payment plan as soon as possible to avoid suspension of your privilege to drive.
