Justice Court – Certificate of Disposition

A Certificate of Disposition is an official court document affixed with the Court Seal that indicates the disposition of the case.

The Court will not prepare a Certificate of Disposition in advance of the receipt of the proper fee. The required fee must be paid in cash or money order payable to the Piermont Justice Court; the court does NOT accept personal checks.

If a case is sealed and you are the defendant, proper proof of identification or a notarized statement will be required to prepare a Certificate of Disposition. If you are acting as an agent for an individual that has a sealed record, you must provide a notarized statement from the defendant indicating permission for the sealed record information to be released in the form of a Certificate of Disposition.

If a record is sealed and you are not the defendant or do not have the written permission of the defendant for the release of the information, the Court can not acknowledge that a record exists (Criminal Procedure Law sec. 160.50 ).
