Billing Pay Now

The District Clerk is authorized to collect court cost and fees as ordered by the District Courts. The Billing section prepares invoices to notify the responsible party of their payment obligation.

Customers may make payments using a variety of methods, but online payment is preferred to avoid delays and further collection action.

Pay Online

To make a payment online, locate your court cost information using the Search Our Records feature. Please note, you will need to log in to search our records.

Simply enter your invoice number in the Invoice # field. If you do not have your invoice number, you may search for your case using other information, such as name and case number. Refer to our Document Search Hints for search tips.

Once you have located your case, click on the case style (plaintiff name vs defendant name). Then, click on the Court Costs tab.

To view itemized assessed fees, click the down arrow located beside the Trans #.

Click on the "Pay Now" icon at the top of the page to begin the payment process.

Pay by Mail

Payments made by mail must include the top portion of your invoice. If you do not have the invoice, please include your case number at the bottom of your payment. If you do not have your case number, please include your full name and the case style (plaintiff vs defendant name) on the bottom of the payment.
