        The information on this site is compiled and made available for public use by the AOPC. Every effort is made to provide accurate and up-to-date case balance information. However, recent case entries made by the individual courts may not be immediately reflected on this site. The Unified Judicial System and the AOPC make no representation as to the accuracy, completeness or utility, for any general or specific purpose, of the information provided herein and as such, assume no liability for inaccurate or delayed data, errors or omissions. The information on this site does not constitute the official record of judicial or administrative actions of the respective courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

        The AOPC makes no guarantees regarding the timeliness of an online payment and its effect on the issuance or removal of a warrant from a case. The processing of payments is dependent upon the individual court to which the payment has been made.Case balances will not be updated until payments are processed by the court. Any payments pending processing by an individual court will have no effect on a previously issued warrant in one’s case or the suspension of one’s driver’s license. The AOPC is not responsible for any possible suspension of your driver’s license due to delays caused by: a) the unavailability of this payment system; or b) any processing delays incurred by the Common Pleas or Magisterial District Courts. It is your responsibility to ensure that a payment is paid in full and on time.
