If you disagree with the judge's decision, you may appeal, but if you appeal, you must file the appeal within 20 calendar clays of your conviction. You will be required to pay a deposit that will be applied against the cost of preparing a transcript of the trial. You also will be required to pay a $75 filing fee. Please ask the court staff to provide you with a copy of the appeal packet, "How to Appeal a Decision of a Municipal Court." Information on representing yourself in an appeal is also available at www.njcourtsonline.com, the Judiciary's Web site.
