Support enforcement fees collected by the Johnson County District Court Trustee increased to 3.5% with a monthly cap of $70.00 per month split evenly between the parties effective February 1, 2021. This new fee structure will apply to all new and existing orders for support enforced by the Court Trustee's Office. The Court Trustee may assess the increase equally between the parties. The past fee structure of 2.5% with a $30.00 cap had been in place since 2014. Unfortunately, the current collections have been insufficient to operate the Court Trustee's office for quite some time requiring the office to meet expenses by depleting reserves accumulated over the preceding twenty years. The Court Trustee has implemented cost saving measures and increased efficiency but further reductions in reserves seriously jeopardizes the offices ability to continue serving children and families in Johnson County.
Even after the fee change, the Johnson County District Court Trustee's office maintains the second lowest enforcement fee of any jurisdiction in the state and is the only jurisdiction with a cap on monthly fee collections. The District Court and Court Trustee remain committed to serving the citizens of Johnson County in the most effective, efficient and cost effective manner possible.
The Johnson County District Court Trustee's office is responsible for the enforcement of more than 12,000 Johnson County support orders as well as any other court orders referred by another court and have been providing quality services to the citizens of Johnson County for over 45 years. The Trustee is empowered to pursue all civil remedies in enforcing the payment of support.
