Municipal Court

Welcome to the City of Long Branch Municipal Court. For most people a visit to court is an intimidating experience. The purpose of this website is to explain the function of the court and what to expect if you need to make a personal appearance before the Judge.

Municipal court processes complaints filed against individuals who have been charged with traffic, local ordinance or disorderly persons violations. Charges of a more serious nature, i.e., indictable charges are initially filed with the municipal court and are then forwarded to the Office of the County Prosecutor. There it is determined whether the case will be disposed of at the county level, or if it will be downgraded and returned to the municipal court for disposition.

A brief explanation will be provided, however, if your questions remain unanswered feel free to call the court at (732) 571-6500. Court staff will be happy to be of assistance.

Please do not enter Not Guilty pleas, Letters of Representation or requests for documents via email. 
You MUST contact the court directly.

Court Sessions:
Tuesdays at 8:15 a.m.
Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m.
