Collection Fee Amnesty Program

Amnesty Timeframe 2020 – October 5th-October 25th

What is the Amnesty Program?

Do you have outstanding criminal or traffic fines and fees? Rock Island County is offering you a chance to settle delinquent accounts and move forward. Collection and late fees will be waived if you bring your payments current on your case(s). Cases which have already been referred to collections are not included in this program. Delinquent amounts owed will have an additional 30% + interested added and referred to collections.  

How do I know if I have a balance due on any of my cases?

We advise you to research your cases through our portal. You can search by name and case number and select the “Fines/Fees” tab to view any remaining balances on your case(s). Please be aware that it is your responsibility to search all possible names and cases for balances.

How do I know how much I need to pay?

You can request a quote on our page. You will find the email and phone number to contact our hearing officer. We will research cases for you and provide you with an estimate. The quote will include your case numbers that can be used to make payments online, in our office or payments can be left in our drop box outside of the Justice Center. Please note – October 25th is the last day to request a quote after this date and delinquent amounts owed will have the additional 30% + interested added and referred to collections. We will schedule you to see our Payment Hearing Officer to have your payments setup and/or provide a balance(s).

How do I make an online payment?

We are also offering online payments!

I live out of town/state and cannot make it to the Courthouse to pay that week. How can I still participate?

We will be accepting payments through the mail by money order or cashier’s check as long as the envelope is postmarked by the last date of the event. Please include your case number(s) and phone number for reference. You will need to address your envelope as follows:
