Attention!!!  To assist in trying to reduce the spread of Coronavirus (COVID19)

In an effort to reduce the number of people coming to the Justice Center, Chief State Court Judge Alan Jordan has reduced traffic offenses by 15% during the duration of the state of emergency.  The 15% reduction ONLY applies if the traffic fine is paid PRIOR to the court date on your citation.  We have options for paying prior to your court date, that does NOT involve coming to the Justice center.  YOu can mail your payments with a money order to: State Court, 90 North Street, Canton, GA 30114 or you can pay online by visiting Cherokee County Online Traffic PaymentsOr you can call 678.493.6550.

Below is a copy of the Traffic Fine Schedule, some offenses that previously were "MUST SEE JUDGE" are now payable at a reduced rate.

If you are coming to this website to pay traffic citations (issued by Georgia State Patrol or the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office) that you received as the result of a TRAFFIC ACCIDENT, these are "MUST SEE JUDGE" offenses; 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 a bench warrant being issued. These citations can NOT be paid online.


Non-payable citations will not be available on-line. If it has been at least 10 business days since you received your citation, and you are unable to access your citation on online please call 678.493.6550, Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.



The State Court Clerk's Office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.  The office is located on the first floor of the Justice Center in suite 160.
