The Court of Common Pleas launched a new interactive voice response system that allows users to pay fines or obtain case information by phone.

The service is available 24/7, and will be able to provide litigants with information about court services, information regarding upcoming court dates and the ability to make payments for fines, cost and restitution with a credit or debit card over the phone.

The system is able to look up individuals, via voice prompt, by their name and date of birth with no case number required. This is a new feature, and the IVR is the only payment method that allows an individual to make an automated payment without knowing their case number.

The numbers for the IVR are: New Castle County, 255-0900; Kent County, 735-3900; and Sussex County, 858-5700
