Online Payments for Criminal Debt

Beginning May 1, 2017, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas will accept online payment of criminal debt obligations (i.e. special assessment, fine and/or restitution). These payments are processed through Pay.gov, a U.S. Treasury website.

 

How do I get started?

  • In order to use the online payment system, you need to have the following:
    • A valid checking or savings account, or
    • A valid credit or debit card, or prepaid card, and
    • A monthly "Debtor's Statement", showing your CCAM number (if you don’t have a “Debtor’s Statement”, you may call the court at (479) 783-6833 and ask for the financial department to obtain your CCAM number.)
  • Register with Pay.gov (optional but recommended):
    • Access reports showing all of your electronic payments
    • Saves time by easily making future payments with stored payment information
       
  • Access the payment form and make a payment
