In-court sessions remain suspended - Virtual Court launching

to mitigate public exposure to COVID-19


To help minimize foot traffic at the courthouse during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bayonne Municipal Court will begin allowing appearances in a virtual court session using Zoom video conferencing.  If an individual opts to appear in the virtual court session, they will not have to appear at the courthouse.  This option is voluntary and will be available for most court matters.  Trials must be conducted at the municipal courthouse.

If you have a case and are interested in appearing in the virtual court, please click the link below and complete the form.  We will schedule your matter in the virtual court, and you will receive an email confirmation with the instructions on how to participate.

NOTICE TO ATTORNEYS:  You may use this form to request a virtual court date for you and your client as well as enter your appearance.  Please enter your office information and client information below.
