Civil Traffic citations issued by Meskwaki Nation Police Depart are typically not filed in the Clerk's office right away and, therefore, the information from the citation will not show up immediately on CitePay USA. It may take 10 to 14 days for a citation to be entered in the Court database by the clerks so check back frequently if you are trying to pay a citation on-line.
If you need to file a document with the Court, you may place it in the Drop Box located by the front door of the Justice Center, file at the court Front Desk, or you may email your pleadings to:
Turn off mobile devices while court is in session
Do not record in the courtroom
Do not transmit any portion of a proceeding, live or recorded
