The Clerk's Office issues restitution payments to victims once a month. Payments are generated when at least $25 is available for disbursement to a victim. Payments are disbursed pursuant to victim information listed in the criminal judgment. If a defendant is not making payments, restitution checks will not generate in that case. Restitution checks are issued by the US Treasury Department and the check stub will contain case information.
To inquire on the status of a restitution payment, please contact the Clerk's Office Financial Department at 414-297-1832 or 414-297-3417.
