Municipal Court Procedures

Chapter 800 of the Wisconsin State Statutes (WI §) is dedicated to municipal court procedures overall and WI § 800.035 explains the procedures for Initial Appearances in municipal court.

Notice of Address Change:  Pursuant to WI § 800.035(2)(a)5 and Wisconsin Act 70 section 14, you are required by law to notify the court, in writing, within 5 days of the pendency of your case(s), of any change to your address.

 

  • First, you should check the upper left corner of your citation to see if your appearance is marked as MANDATORY.
    • If your court appearance is MANDATORY you must appear, regardless if you are going to enter a plea of guilty or no contest. You must notify the court before your scheduled court date of any issues.
    • If your court appearance is not MANDATORY, you may avoid appearing in court by submitting our plea sheet to the Municipal Court Clerk.  Click HERE to print and fill out a copy of our PLEA SHEET. please fill the form out completely.
  • Another way you can avoid appearing in court is by simply paying the deposit amount listed on the citation prior to your court date and a plea of no contest will be entered for you. (click HERE for payment options)
  • If you choose this option and then change your mind and want to appear in court you may still do so.
  • You are always welcome to appear in person, or for your convenience and/or any safety concerns, you may appear virtually, to speak with the court.
  • In accordance with WI § 800.05 you also have the right to have a trial in another Municipal Court.
