Collection of Restitution, Fines, and Fees

An important function of the court is assuring that victims receive awarded restitution and that sanctions of the court are enforced. Effectively managing and monitoring accounts receivable assists in victims being made whole, and fines and fees ordered by the court being collected. This measure is updated quarterly.

District Court

The district court is responsible for collecting accounts receivable up to 90 days past due. If an account receivable is more than 90 days past due, the district court transfers the responsibility for collecting the account receivable to the Office of State Debt Collection.

Juvenile Court

The juvenile court is responsible for collecting accounts receivable at least until the youth is 18 years old. Case order accounts may be sent to the Office of State Debt Collection after the juvenile has reached age 18 (based on local court policy).
