Community Service

If you are eligible for community service and you would like to do Community Service rather than pay the fine, the OATH Help Center can assist you in fulfilling your community service requirement/mandate.

*To address general concerns about the coronavirus, COVID-19, OATH is temporarily conducting community service via telephone conferencing.*

You will not be required to do any physical labor or travel to any location. Instead, an OATH Procedural Justice Coordinator will conduct a community service session over the phone with you. If you have multiple community service hour requirements, this may entail conducting multiple telephone community service sessions. Foreign language services are available upon request free of charge.
