(CMR) The Cayman Islands Judicial Administration announced that members of the public can now make payments for some court-related matters online.
Payment Gateway, the online portal, can be accessed via the website www.judicial.ky to process a variety of court payments. The service covers the payment of traffic and speeding tickets, payment of spousal or child maintenance, payment of notary fees, and professional licenses.
Court Administrator Suzanne Bothwell stated, “The online payment system makes it easier and faster for court users to make court payments. The impetus for these innovations was largely driven by the pandemic, and these new services add to the portfolio of current online services offered by the law courts. This initiative was led in conjunction with the Clerk of Court, who is the manager for court operations, and other managers within the administration who provide support services to the courts. Whilst our suite of online services expands, we continue to keep in mind the needs of our court users.”
“We hope that this new service will allow court users to take advantage of conducting their business with the courts from the comfort of their home or office instead of having to physically attend and maneuver the congestion of downtown,” she further stated.
When accessing the portal to make payments, court users will need to have on hand:
1. Debit or credit card;
2. For payment of traffic/speeding ticket, a valid driver’s license and a copy of the ticket itself. Only payments in full are permitted within the time allowed to pay;
3. For maintenance cases, the case reference number; and
4. For professional fees, the unique reference of the individual or firm.
