What happens if I fail to pay a court-ordered fine?

If you have gone to court and been assessed a fine and/or allowed to complete community service and you fail to do so by the due date or any extension date granted by the court, your case will go into a delinquent status. The court will send a notice to the address we have on file. If the fine remains unpaid, a $300 civil assessment will be added and the case will be sent to our collection vendor. If your case has been sent to the collection vendor, you must deal directly with them. The phone number is: (800) 352-3778. Cases in this status are not set for court hearings to re-litigate the charges that were made against you, as there are no legal matters left for the court decide. The exceptions are (and clear proof is always required): Hospitalization, incarceration, or military deployment during a substantial portion of the time the fine was due. You also have the right to petition the court to reduce or vacate the civil assessment or for a judicial officer to determine if you have the ability to pay your fine.
