DeKalb Ordinance Violations

For DeKalb ordinance violation citations, you will be notified that you can avoid having a court case filed against you if you pay the listed fine and sign a trial waiver within 14 days of receiving the ticket. Payment must be made in person to the City of DeKalb Legal Division in City Hall. After 14 days, a court case is filed and additional courts costs are due if you are found guilty or plead guilty. The city will ask for an increased fine above the minimum listed and a default judgment if you fail to show up on your first court date.
