Court-Ordered Payments

Fines & Restitution

Individuals who are sentenced by this Court on criminal charges will be ordered to make fine and restitution payment through this Office. Restitution and fine payments are normally processed within one working day of receipt.

Civil Garnishments

Monies collected on a writ of garnishment issued pursuant to an order filed in this court will be held for 10 days before the funds are sent to the garnishor.

Guardian ad Litem Fees

The Court may order the parties in a custody or paternity case to pay the fees of a court-appointed Guardian ad Litem (GAL). The order may state that these fees are to be deposited with the Clerk of District Court. These fees are deposited in a non interest-barring account, and fees are paid when a statement of costs is received from the GAL. Any funds which remain in the account after the GAL has been paid will be refunded to the paying parties. If the GAL costs and fees exceed the amount in the account, the Court order will order the parties to pay the balance.
