Writing to a judge...

This is a discussion thread · 5 replies
Hello, my letter is sort of painful. I need to write a letter to a judge explaining why I did not take care of my ticket on the required time...then I need to ask him for an extention. I really have no idea in the world what the best approach would be to this matter and was wondering if you had any suggestions.

I have relocated to Riverside,Ca and have been blessed with a good job .I have been trying to get my life back on the right track. and do the right things. Is there any way possible that I can pay the court for the remaining days that I owe the county? And if this is possible will the warrant for my arest then be removed? Your Honor I am ready to take care of this as soon as I possibly can. I want to thank you for taking the time to read my request.I will be waiting to hear from the court. To find out what your desicion is going to be.

Thank you,
Sincerely Yours,

I think that sounds decent, but I'd work more on your punctuation and spelling
