When you pay the officer, you are posting bond. The clerk has no authority to take your bond money without your request. If your appearance is not required, you can fill out either the guilty plea or the affidavit for Court Supervision and mail it to the Clerk’s office. We must receive it prior to 4 business days before your court date.

It is very important that you appear in court on the date and time assigned. If you do not show up, the judge has many options ranging from continuing your case, finding you guilty and assessing fines & costs, to issuing a warrant for your arrest. If it is the first court date for the case, the clerk can issue a continuance if you request it in person or in writing (no faxes), no less than 4 business days prior to the court date. If it is not your first court date, you may try to have someone you know show up for you. There is no guarantee that the judge will continue your case, but the person you send can explain the circumstances.
Call our office at (630) 407-8600 two days after the court date and we will explain your options depending on the action of the judge.
