- What do I do if the judgment that I have on someone has been paid off?
Once you have received full payment of your judgment, you will be required to release the judgment. This is accomplished by filing a release of judgment with the clerk of the court.
- How do I collect the money for the judgment that I was awarded?
Collecting the judgment is your responsibility. The length of time it will take to collect will depend upon both your diligence and the debtor’s ability to pay. Filing a Proceedings Supplemental is the first step. These forms are available in the Clerk’s Office.
- How much does it cost to file a Small Claim?
As of July 1, 2017 the cost is $125.00 to file against one defendant and $10 for each additional defendant to file a Small Claim.
- How do I obtain a protective order?
Protective orders are cost-free to anyone who is a victim of domestic or family violence, stalking, or a sex offense. Because this is a civil proceeding, the Prosecutor's Office is not involved in the issuance of such orders. Rather, a person must go to Randolph County Clerk's office, where he or she will fill out the paperwork to be reviewed and ruled on by a judge.
You can find the paperwork HERE. You will need to print and fill out a Petition (PO-0100) for yourself or a Petition on behalf of a Child (PO-0101) if filing on behalf of your child. You will also need to fill out a Confidential.
WHEN FILLING OUT THE PAPERWORK: You are the Petitioner and the person it's against is the Respondent. If you can answer #1 and #2 on the Petition you qualify for a Protective Order.
For the judge to approve a protective order, the petitioner must allege that the respondent has attempted to cause, threatened to cause or is causing physical harm to the petitioner, or that the respondent is actually placing the petitioner in fear of physical harm. If you have filed a police report regarding an incident that has happened it helps the court to make a ruling if you can obtain a copy of the police report that you filed.
- How do I make a child support payment?
You can mail your child support payment in the form of a check or money order to Randolph County Clerk's Office, PO Box 230, Winchester IN 47394. Please write your cause number and "Child Support" on the memo line of your check or money order.
You may also come into our office to make a payment in person. We will accept cash, check, or money order.
If you would like to make a payment online you can visit the Child Support Bill Pay site to make a payment. Do NOT wait until the last minute! When making your first payment online, you may need to call our office to make sure your information is on our computer properly. If we need to update your information (SSN, DOB, etc.) then it will take 24 hours to take effect and you will not be able to make your first payment that day.
YOU MUST HAVE YOUR CASE # IN ORDER TO MAKE A PAYMENT ONLINE! Call the Clerk's Office at (765) 584-7407 to check on this information.
- How many garnishments can be taken out of my pay at once?
Only one garnishment can be applied at one time; garnishment orders are paid in the order that they are received by the employer.
- Do you accept payment with a credit card or ATM card for court fines and costs?
Yes! (EXCEPT WHEN PAYING CHILD SUPPORT) There is a $3.95 or 3.95% charge to use this service when paying over the phone. You can also pay online by using the PayGOV System
YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR CAUSE # to make sure that you're payment is applied to the correct case.
