A case has been filed against me, how do I resolve this?

You may have a warrant out for your arrest. You have the following options:

  • You can pay off the entire balance owed to Check Enforcement. After the office receives payment in full, the Program will send a dismissal to the Justice Court your case is filed in. You should also contact the Justice Court, as the courts impose their own fines and fees per case.
  • You can sign a guilty plea in the Justice Court. Contact the Justice Court, ask for a court date or when open court is scheduled. Arrive at your court date and let the Judge know you are there to sign a guilty plea. The court may give you the option to make monthly restitution payments, outlined in your plea. Payments are to be sent to the Check Enforcement Program. Include your personal ID number (PID#) with all payments. After the office receives payment in full, the Program will send a dismissal to the Justice Court your case is filed in. You should also contact the Justice Court, as the courts impose their own fines and fees per case.
  • You can request a trial.
