Judicial Court Amnesty Program

We will be working with the Judicial Council of California, Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) on their amnesty program. The Administrative Office of the Courts will administer the statewide program over a six month term, from January 1 to June 30, 2012. The program will provide relief to individuals who have found themselves in violation of a court-ordered obligation because they are financially unable to pay infraction bail or fines.

The program will not adversely impact our current Court-Ordered Debt (COD) collection or Interagency Intercept Collection (IIC) programs. If you have a client affected by this program, we can refer you to the court where the violation incurred, or you can go to the AOC which has provided a list of frequently asked questions for the amnesty program.

The courts and counties are responsible for identifying the cases, notifying us, and withdrawing amnesty accounts. Less than 1 percent of our court-ordered debt cases may qualify for amnesty relief.
