The Unified Judicial System (UJS) makes the first attempt to collect your court-ordered debts. If the UJS fails, your account can be sent to Collections. All funds received from the UJS will be applied to your debts. If you owe a refund, the UJS will also make a payment to the victims. Reparation is when the court orders you, as part of your criminal sentence, to pay a victim for the losses you have suffered as a result of your crime. The UJS collects the money and sends it to the victim. Your court-ordered debt is part of your penalty and must be paid. If you do not pay, your account will be sent to the South Dakota Obligation Recovery Center (ORC) for later collection. Under South Dakota law, the ORC adds a 20% cost recovery fee to your total balance owing.
You can also block your ability to renew or obtain a motor vehicle, boat or motorcycle registration, driver`s license, or hunting, fishing, parking, and camping licenses until you`ve paid your debts or set up a payment plan. The ORC can also confiscate any money won through the South Dakota lottery and use it for the debt you owe.

If you ignore a lawsuit, the collector may receive a court order and attachment against you. Tell the judge that the debt is time-barred and show a copy of the collector`s audit notice or any information indicating the date of your last payment. You can request a regular hearing if you do not agree with the transfer of your debts to the ORC, which has prevented you from renewing, obtaining or maintaining a licence or permit. A person affected by a registration, licence or enforcement of a vehicle licence may apply for a due process hearing by the ORC in respect of the debt transferred for collection. If you win at a due process hearing, your debts will not be forgiven.
Instead, your account will be withdrawn by the ORC for subsequent collection from the unified court system and the 20% cost recovery fee will be removed from the debt balance. Fees are all other legal fees associated with your case. This can include things like the cost of your court-appointed lawyer or the estimated testing fee.
