A: If you have a citation that requires a court appearance, you need to contact the court about your situation either in person or in writing, include a copy of the citation. Failing to respond could subject you to additional penalties and be considered an FTA- failure to appear. If the citation is from a government agency, you need to respond to them in writing and explain your situation. Courts and Agencies are award of the Covid situation and are extending response times in many situations because of this.
THE OPINIONS STATED HEREIN ARE BASED ON THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE QUESTION,WITHOUT ANY INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION. DO NOT RELY ON FREE LEGAL ADVICE IN A PUBLIC FORUM, EVEN MINE. CONTACT AN ATTORNEY OF YOUR CHOOSING IN YOUR LOCAL AREA TO PROTECT YOUR IMPORTANT PERSONAL RIGHTS.
Chris M. Bradford agrees with this answer
A: I agree with the previous answer and I would add, DON'T WAIT. You may have a time limit to respond to the citation. Read the citation carefully. Even if you are past the time limit, you need to respond. It won't go away. You may get some leniency to fix the problem because of Covid.
