About the The Fines Recovery & Driver’s License Reinstatement Programs
The purpose of this program is to assist individuals who have delinquent court debt by providing a payment plan option. Some people qualify to have their driver’s license reinstated while they make payments. We work closely with probation offices to ensure people under supervision are on and active and current payment plan.

Assisting Residents with Delinquent Financial Court Obligations
The Marshall County Attorney's Office has established programs to assist the residents of Marshall County and those non-residents who have delinquent financial court obligations in Marshall County. For many, outstanding court debt has become a source of ongoing stress, financial hardship and in some cases additional court costs resulting from contempt of court and jail time.

Reaching a Broader Range of People
Two distinctly separate programs have been created in an effort to provide assistance to a broader range of people. For example, those who might not qualify for driver's license reinstatement at this time might be eligible for a payment plan through our office while they work to meet the other requirements for reinstatement.
