COURT users across Wagga and NSW will soon be able to access services with more ease.
A new look website is being launched to make it faster and easier for the community to access important information around the court system, as well as pay fines.
With thousands of people going through the Wagga Local and District Court systems each year, and approximately 2.5 million people visiting NSW courts and tribunals websites annually, Attorney General Mark Speakman said the upgraded service was essential.
"The user-friendly websites will help take the stress out of navigating the justice system and make transactions including paying court-issued penalties fast and simple," he said.
Full or part payment of penalty debts can be made through the new Pay Your Penalty portal.
The redesigned websites are easier to read and improve compatibility on a range of devices including mobile phones.

Among the upgraded websites are Courts and Tribunal Services (including Jury Services), Local Court, District Court, Children's Court, Coroners Court, Drug Court, Dust Diseases Tribunal, NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) and Uniform Civil Procedures Rules (UCPR).
Website upgrades for the Supreme Court, Land and Environment Court and NSW Industrial Relations Commission are also nearing completion.
"The websites have an advanced search function to speed up the process of finding key information, while improved access to online forms will increase efficiency for court users and staff," Mr Speakman said.
