Refund Policy
No refunds will be given. For additional information on refund policies, please see the Public Records Policies and Procedures at the link provided above.

Information Required
The application will first ask for information about you and the credit card that you will use to pay your invoice. The purpose for this information is to validate the credit card payment. For security purposes, the State Attorney’s Office does not retain your credit card information, and for that reason, you will be required to reenter credit card information for each payment you make.

Security
The State Attorney’s Office website does not require a secure connection. However, a secure connection is provided by the online payment link; this is provided by Payeezy.
