Changes to County Court fine payment arrangements

December 20, 2017

County Court fine payment arrangements are changing from 22 December 2017.

In mid-December the Court wrote to all those paying fines detailing the changes that the new Fines Reform Act 2014, introduces when it comes into operation on 31 December 2017.  

Under the changes, Fines Victoria will take over the collection and enforcement of the majority of fines currently paid to the County Court. Some monetary penalties are remaining with the Court. 

In January 2018, Fines Victoria will be sending Court Fine Collection Statements to all those whose fines are transferring to the new organisation. The Collection Statements will detail the payment options available. 

If you have any other questions specifically about your case, please contact the County Court on 8636 6570 for further information.
