How much is my fine?

Fine amounts are no longer posted on the Minnesota Judicial Branch website. Fines include law library fees which are set by each county and the total amount of fines can vary. 

A total fine amount is not available until law enforcement files the citation with the court and it is entered into the Minnesota Court Information System (MNCIS).  To view the amount of your fine, follow the steps below:
1.  On the Pay Fines page, under 'Pay Online', select the 'Make Payment/View Fine Amount' button.
