Can a county attorney from another county collect my court debt?

Yes, in the following situations:

  1. Any county attorney collecting court debt can collect any debt related to a violation of state traffic laws or laws of the road.
  2. A county attorney from one county can enter an agreement to collect court debt for one or more contiguous counties. In this situation a county attorney other than where the violation occurred may collect the court debt.

Except for these two situations, the county attorney where the violation occurred or a third party debt collector designated by the judicial branch must collect the debt.
