If you are incarcerated (serving time in a jail or penitentiary): Payments toward your criminal debt may be deducted from your inmate account. Ask your case counselor for details.
If you are on probation: Your probation officer will provide instructions regarding how to submit your payments.
Should I deliver the payment in person or can I mail it?
1. Paying in person: Your case counselor or probation officer will assist you in determining where your payments should be made. Usually, payments for criminal debt are made to the Clerk, U.S. District Court in the city where the judgment was imposed. Effective August 1, 2001, all payments made at any Clerk's Office in the Western District of Texas must be made with a cashier's check or money order.
2. Paying by mail: If mailing a payment, please send only cashier's checks or money orders. You should also include the following information:
a. The case number,
b. Type of payment (special assessment, fine, restitution, etc.), and,
c. The name of the debtor (defendant).
