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.
FILING A DOCUMENT?
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
HEARING COMING UP?
All Court Users are expected to appear in person for scheduled hearings in their case. If a party requests to appear remotely for a hearing they must complete a written form and send to the other parties in their case (or their attorneys) to allow them an opportunity to agree or object to the request. FORM TO USE: Go to top of this page to "Forms and Information", select "For the Public", and click to download and print "Motion for Remote Appearance".
