Frequently Asked Questions for Compliance:
Who is eligible to set up a payment plan?
Anyone that is unable to pay off his/her total fines and fees on the day of court.
How does this work?
- The judge will give the defendant a Compliance Order and they will report to the appropriate office.
What happens when I have more than one case?
- A payment plan must be set up on each case individually.
What happens if I am on court supervision?
- If the Court supervision is 6 months or less, payment in full will be due by the end of your court supervision. If the court supervision is longer than 6 months, a monthly payment plan will be set up.
When does the installment agreement start?
- Initial payment is encouraged and first payment is due within 30 days.
Where do I go to set up payment plans?
If you have a TR or DT case you go to Traffic Division. If you have an OV, CM, or CF case you go to Criminal Division.
Do I need to come in to set up a payment plan?
If you live in the surrounding area you must come into the office to set up a payment plan. If you live out of state you may call the Compliance Office at 309-478-5699 to set up a payment plan.
What happens if a payment agreement isn’t set up?
Defendants that do not pay or report to the office will be turned over to collections and 30% will be added to the balance due.
When are cases referred to collections?
- If a defendant defaults on the payment agreement or does not set one up.
What do I do if my case has been sent to collections?
- Call Credit Collection Partners at 217-284-4400.
When is a notice sent?
Defendants have a payment due date. If no payment is made on or before that date, a notice is sent to them the next day. They only get a one time late notice. If payment is late a second time, no notice will be given and the case will be forwarded to collections.
What do I do if I have a question on an existing payment plan?
