Bates County Circuit Court
Amendment Fees and Court Costs:
**Important Note: Amendment fees are never the same as the fine on your ticket or pay slip. Those amounts are "plead guilty" amounts. That is the amount the court will charge you to plead guilty to the citation as a moving violation and have it recorded against your driving record.
We are not pleading you guilty. We are having your ticket amended and therefore, court amendment fees replace the fines on your ticket or pay slip. For more information, read ticket costs - amendment vs guilty plea.
Amounts the Bates County Circuit Court
will require you to pay:
(these amounts include the court amendment fee and court costs)
Why is this amount different than the fine that may be on your ticket? Please read the Important Note above.
Most speeding tickets meeting the criteria above and minor traffic violations such as stop sign, illegal turn, signal or lane change will generally be assessed an amendment fee of $175 - $300 by the Bates County Circuit Court prosecutor depending upon how far over the speed limit you were cited as traveling or your specific infraction. The Bates County court also considers your past driving record when amending a ticket.
Therefore, that is an estimate of what the court will require and can be changed by the court at any time.
We charge an attorney fee to go to court for you and have your ticket amended. In most cases, you do not have to go to court, nor do you have to come into our office. Our goal is to make the process as easy on you as possible.
After we have your ticket amended, we pay the court your amendment fees and court costs and send the original court receipt to you with our closing letter. That completes your amendment process in most cases.
