Set a Payment Arrangement

The Enhanced Collections Division can assist you by offering payment options. Please read the below information to prepare you for the financial evaluation process.

How are payment arrangements determined?

All income and basic expenses are reviewed. Payment arrangements are based on your ability to pay.

Administration Fee

A $50.00 administration fee will be added to each felony, misdemeanor, and juvenile case when setting a payment arrangement. On traffic cases, a $35.00 administration fee will be added to each case. If the original payment plan is broken, a re-evaluation and a subsequent administrative fee may be added.
