The most common form of penalty imposed by a Magistrate in the Local Court is a fine.

Before setting an amount for a fine, the Magistrate or Judge should consider your financial situation and your ability to pay any fine that they may set.

You have 28 days of a Court ordering you to pay a fine to either pay it in full, arrange to pay by installments or request an extension of the time.  If you do not make arrangements within 28 days, an additional penalty will apply, therefore you should contact the Court Registry to make these arrangements if necessary as soon as possible.
