Frequently Asked Questions

Monthly payments may be an option by calling Court Collections and speaking with a collections assistant at 707-521-6659.

You may make your payment by personal check, money order, cashiers check, Visa and MasterCard or cash. Please do not send credit card information or cash through the mail. For overnight hold releases, payments must be made with guaranteed funds (not personal checks).
