NJ Courts Mission Statement

We are an independent branch of government constitutionally entrusted with the fair and just resolution of disputes in order to preserve the rule of law and to protect the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States and this State.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, municipal courts have cancelled their in person court sessions. With the use of technology, certain cases may be able to be heard and adjudicated remotely. It is advised that you contact the court to set up a video court proceeding and provide your telephone and email address.

Core Values

Required to accomplish our mission are four paramount values representing the core of what we stand for as an organization:

  • Independence
  • Integrity
  • Fairness
  • Quality Service

Scheduling a Court Appearance

If your summons is not marked “court appearance required” and you wish to plead “not guilty,” you must call to schedule a court appearance. Failure to comply will result in a second court appearance.

Directions

Boonton Municipal Court and payment / inquiry window is located at 3333 Rt. 46 in Parrsippany (across the jug handle from the Parsippany Post Office).  For directions, click the directions link on this page.

Mediation

Mediation is a confidential, structured, non-adversarial process that allows a neutral third party to assist disputing parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution. The mediation process can be a less expensive, informal, and more meaningful alternative than the traditional trial process. This is because of the efforts of trained volunteers and resolution being decided by the participants. The court will refer appropriate cases to mediation.

Expedited Expungement

If you are charged with a disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense, or a municipal ordinance violation, and those charges are either dismissed, you are acquitted, or your case is discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt, you may be eligible for an expedited expungement pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6.
