Whenever possible, I recommend that defendants pay their fines and court costs by money order, cash, or check. This is because substantial fees are charged for credit card payments. But, it is better to pay via credit card rather than not pay at all. If a person has no choice but to pay via credit card, the information to do that is below. I scanned the following image from a handout I obtained from the Coles County Circuit Clerk’s Office.
UPDATE: Court fines can now be paid online via judici.com.
