HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
You can pay the amount of the check and the $20 fee within 15 days of receipt of the Notice.
If you do not make those payments in the 15 days, the creditors will be within their rights to file a civil action against you and under Utah Code Annotated, Section 7-15-1 for the following:1) The amount for which the check was written2) Interest on this amount3) The court costs charged to the creditor4) The creditor's lawyers' fees5) The collections fees in the amount allowed by Utah's laws6) Triple the amount for which the check was written or $100, whichever is greater except when this amount will be more than $500, or the check's writer is determined not to be guilty of writing a bad check on a check that is post-dated
I suggest the best thing to do is contact the person you paid the check to and tell them you want to pay the check, make it good in cash and the fee. When you do this get a receipt for it. Then contact the DA and tell them the issue is settled. If it has gone to criminal court, it can be dismissed once you have made it good.
Thank you. If it has already reached the courts, you need settle it with the District Attorney. But there is nothing on your record at this time.
You can try to contact the person you wrote the check to and see if they will dismiss it with cash payment, however
Then you can take the receipt to the court and have the DA dismiss the charge.
I suggest you can contact the District Attorney and tell them you want to make payment and request to be allowed to do that, and request they dismiss the matter. You can try that. Ultimately, it is up to the DA to dismiss.
You can contact the DA in the county where you are scheduled for court. And discuss that option.
Thank you. ***** that case, contact the clerk of the court and request to settle this so the matter can be dismissed. If this is in the court system, the District Attorney for that county has the matter. But the clerk should be able to tell you how to pay it and have it dismissed. If the clerk will not tell you, then you need to go the DA in the county where the City is located.
I suggest you should be able to pay it and have it dismissed, if the person you wrote it to is agreeable to that.
