PLEASE BE ADVISED
ALL COURT MATTERS

We have all found ourselves in an unprecedented situation.  In an effort to ensure the health and safety of our community members, to keep with the current social distancing practices and avoid unnecessary congestion in our courtroom, please see the below options regarding any outstanding matters that need to be resolved.

To Plead Guilty:

  • By mail:  Send a personal check / money order to New Hyde Park Village Court, 1420 Jericho Turnpike, New Hyde Park, N.Y. 11040.
  • In person:  Credit Card (Master Card / Visa Card only) or cash will be accepted at the Village Hall between the hours of 10:00AM-3:00PM M-F.  We also have a mail drop-box inside the vestibule of the Village Hall for check payments as well.

Please note that a 2.99% Surcharge is applied to all Credit Card payments.

To Plead Not Guilty:

In response to the current conditions and restrictions brought about by COVID-19, as well as adhering to the Updated Protocols for Nassau County Village Courts, we have suspended all in-person Court appearances until further notice.  The Village of New Hyde Park Court has begun conferencing cases via telephone.  This is being offered to provide the opportunity to resolve open traffic and parking violations without having to personally appear in the Village Court.

Anyone interested in participating in a telephone conference would follow these steps:

  1. Plead not guilty to the summons and send it back to the court.
  2. Upon receipt of your not guilty plea we will send you a Telephone Access Contact Sheet. The date and time of your telephone conference is indicated on the contact sheet.
  3. This sheet must be filled out and returned to the court at least one week before your phone conference is scheduled. The phone number you fill in on the form is the phone number used by the Court to contact you.

 If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email us at court@vnhp.org or you can call the court at 516-354-6330, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 8:45 AM-4:15 PM.

 Thank you for your understanding during this time.
