Effective February 18, 2013, all checks accepted at the Court’s Northern Division will be processed as electronic funds transfers. The new check process, as piloted by the Northern Division, will result in improved efficiency and cost savings for the Court.
Under this new process, any check presented at the Clerk’s Office for payment of fees (both at the Intake window and by mail) will be scanned and converted into an electronic funds transfer at the time the check is received and the check amount may be immediately debited from the account identified on the check.
As in the past, the Clerk’s Office will retain an image of each check. However, instead of forwarding checks for manual processing, the checks will be shredded and will appear as an electronic transfer on the presenters’ financial institution bank statements.
The Court will issue a Public Notice before the Court’s other divisions convert to this new check process. Should you have any questions, please contact our Call Center at the toll free number (855) 460-9641.
