HB 162, Debt Setoff; Administrative Office of the Courts

Municipal Impact Position Contact
Neutral Rusi Patel, (678) 686-6210

Last Updated: 3/28/2018
Subject Area: Municipal Courts |
Resources: bill text
This legislation would allow the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) to impose a collection fee on each debt submitted to the court, but would not require such a fee. It would allow the AOC to waive such fees and clearly state that such fees were in addition to the debt. It would allow interest on proceeds to be used to cover administrative costs and to be retained by the AOC. The bill would also require transfer of funds to the court in which the debt is owed on a quarterly basis.
