Douglas County District Court
Diversion Fees and Court Costs:
**Important Note: Amendment or diversion fees are never the same as the fine on your ticket or pay slip. Those amounts on your ticket 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 diverted and therefore, court diversion fees are in addition to the fines on your ticket or pay slip in most cases. For more information, read ticket costs - diversion or amendment vs guilty plea.

The amount depends upon how far over the speed limit you were cited as traveling or your specific infraction.
Douglas County District Court will not allow traffic diversions for all tickets issued so call us for the latest guidelines. Therefore, This 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 complete the diversion process with you and the court and pay the court your fine and diversion fees, we send the original court receipt to you with our closing letter. That completes your initial diversion process in most cases.
