Municipal Court

* As of January 12th, 2021, all bench trials, jury trials and preliminary hearings are on hold, due to the rise in COVID cases, per order of the Chief Justice of SC. We will notify everyone who has received a ticket prior to January 11, 2021, via certified mail, of their new court date and time as soon as we are able to resume court operations. Everyone needs to notify the court if their address changes, so they are assured of getting their notices.  As always, if anyone would like to just go ahead and pay their ticket, they may do so at the City’s website. 

*During the month of March, 2021, in-person payments made only be made at Abbeville Municipal Court between the hours of 8:30 am – 12:00 pm.
