Criminal Financial Obligations
The Criminal Financial Obligations (CFO) Unit is responsible for processing payments paid on criminal cases into an automated financial system. Funds are applied to court ordered sanctions on a case and are allocated and disbursed according to the Arizona Office of the Courts Priority of Offender Payment guidelines. CFO is responsible for keeping detailed financial records, called a payment history, on all criminal cases.

Accepted Form of Payment
Payments must be made in cash, money order or a wire transfer. Credit card payments are accepted at limited locations listed below and subject to a $500 maximum transaction amount. All other forms of payment will be rejected and returned to the sender.

The defendant's full name and complete case number must be noted on the payment to ensure it is applied to the correct account.

Time Payment Plan
If you are required to pay fines, penalties, fees or other financial obligations as a result of a judgement of this court and you are unable to pay, bring this information to the attention of court staff or the judge because payments over time or other alternatives may be available. Do not ignore your responsibility to pay, as this may result in additional penalties and costs to you.

Victim Information
The CFO Unit is also responsible for the disbursement of court ordered restitution payments. Each year thousands of dollars fail to reach the intended recipient because of inaccurate address information. It is imperative that current victim address information be on file to ensure payments are promptly forwarded to the recipient. Address change forms may be submitted via email or mailed to:
