No, the Court is not an employment agency. I suggest that you return to Court with an attorney and explain your situation. I am all but certain the payments can be extended.
You will need to hire an attorney to explain the situation to the Judge and smooth things over.

This reply should NOT be considered a legal opinion of your case / inquiry. At this time I do not have sufficient factual/legal documentation to give a complete answer to your question and there may be more to the issues you raised then I have set out in my brief reply.
As stated, the court will not help you find a job. Some fines/fees are mandatory and cannot be waived. That being said, speak to your attorney and devise a strategy for asking for an extension on the fines, restitution, and fees. Some courts will be understanding of your situation given the current state of the economy. That being said, don't wait until the last minute to do anything, being proactive with court dates, fines, fees, and apperances is always a good idea.
