The Guilderland Town Court is pretty far up Western Avenue, technically in the Village of Altamont. Like most local Upstate New York courts it hears traffic, criminal, and civil matters from within the town's jurisdiction. Also similar to other courts in the area, and surprising to those who do not work in the legal profession, court is held on limited days and during the evening. This means if you are required to appear for a traffic ticket or to answer a criminal charge (Guilderland does not typically require a personal appearance to answer traffic tickets), you can either come after work or plan for a late trip back home if you live in Canada, New York City or other region. The court is on the first floor of the town hall and they have a separate mailing address at: P.O. Box 339, Guilderland, NY 12084 (this information also appears on your ticket). Court clerks are available Monday through Friday to answer your questions and/or help you track down lost documents. You can also find more information on their official website - townofguilderland.org.
