2B:19-6 Transfer of matters involving the collection of monies.

6. a. All matters involving the collection of monies in the Superior Court and Tax Court which have not been resolved in accordance with an order of the court may be transferred, pursuant to court rule, to the comprehensive enforcement program for such action as may be appropriate. As an alternative to, or in addition to, the use of the comprehensive enforcement program, the Administrative Director of the Courts may contract with a private agency or firm to collect any outstanding monies payable to the Superior Court, the Tax Court, or the municipal courts. Outstanding monies payable to a municipal court means monies owed after a final determination of guilt by a municipal court and only when the municipal court has exhausted all judicial enforcement remedies permitted by law or court rule. The use of private collection agencies to collect outstanding monies payable to the Superior Court, the Tax Court and municipal courts shall be governed by rules and procedures adopted by the Supreme Court. The Administrative Director of the Courts may authorize the assessment of an administrative fee by a private agency or firm not to exceed 22% of the amount collected to be paid by the defendant to the private collection agency to pay for the costs of collection.

b. (1) A municipal court may request that all matters which have not been resolved in accordance with an order of that court be transferred to the comprehensive enforcement program in accordance with the provisions of section 9 of P.L.1995, c.9 (C.2B:19-9) for such action as may be appropriate. All monies collected through the comprehensive enforcement program which result from the enforcing of orders transferred from any municipal court shall be subject to the 25% deduction authorized pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1995, c.9 (C.2B:19-4) except for monies collected in connection with the enforcement of orders related to parking violations.

(2)(Deleted by amendment, P.L.2009, c.233)

c.The Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission may refer matters of surcharges imposed administratively under the New Jersey Merit Rating Plan in accordance with the provisions of section 6 of P.L.1983, c.65 (C.17:29A-35) which have not been satisfied to the comprehensive enforcement program in accordance with the procedures established pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1997, c.280 (C.2B:19-10) to be reduced to judgment and for such additional action as may be appropriate. All monies collected through the comprehensive enforcement program which result from the collection of these surcharge monies shall be subject to the 25% deduction authorized pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1995, c.9 (C.2B:19-4).

d. (1) At the request of the Public Defender, the Clerk of the Superior Court shall refer every unsatisfied lien, filed by the Public Defender, to the comprehensive enforcement program for collection. All monies collected through the comprehensive enforcement program which result from the collection of these liens shall be subject to the deduction authorized pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1995, c.9 (C.2B:19-4).

(2)Upon satisfaction of a public defender lien through the comprehensive enforcement program, the comprehensive enforcement program shall notify the Clerk of the Superior Court within 10 days of satisfaction and the satisfaction of the lien shall be entered in the Superior Court Judgment Index.
