Five District Courts Added to Arkansas Online Court Payment System

July 3, 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 3, 2019--

The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) recently added five district courts to its Arkansas Online Court Payment system. Citizens now have the option to pay traffic citations and scheduled payment plans online for Caddo Valley, England, Lonoke, Perry County, and Wrightsville district courts with a debit or credit card through the website, https://pay.arcourts.gov.

“We are excited to expand our online court payment system to over 30 courts across Arkansas,” said Administrative Office of the Courts Director Marty Sullivan. “Part of our strategic plan is to improve efficiency and accessibility throughout our state court system. Expanding capability to accept online court payments is a significant step in that direction.”

Citizens visiting https://pay.arcourts.gov begin by selecting a court from the drop-down menu, then entering their citation or payment plan number, and their first and last name. A citation or payment plan number is required to proceed. The system then walks the user through the secure payment process provided by the state’s official payment processor, the Information Network of Arkansas (INA). A full list of courts accepting online payments can be found at https://pay.arcourts.gov.
