Private Collecting of Municipal Court Debt

Private Collection Agencies Authorized to Collect Municipal Court Debt

The Administrative Office of the Courts announced:

On January 16, 2010, L. 2009, c. 233 was signed into law. Among other provisions, the law authorizes the governing body of a municipality or the governing body of a county having a central municipal court to enter into a contract with a private collection agency or firm for the purpose of collecting outstanding municipal court debt. Pursuant to the legislation, an administrative fee, not to exceed 22% of the amount collected, is to be paid to the private collection agency or firm to pay for the cost of collection. The law further provides that the use of private collection agencies for these purposes shall be governed by rules and procedures adopted by the Supreme Court.
