The Court Trustee is responsible for enforcing support orders (child support and maintenance orders, both temporary and final), collecting court-ordered court debts and victim restitution in criminal cases referred to the office, and collecting court debts in traffic cases

The office of the Douglas County District Court Trustee was established in 1995 by the Judges of the Seventh Judicial District to better serve the citizens of Douglas County by providing expedited enforcement of child support and maintenance orders.

The office also has a contract with the Office of the Judicial Administration to collect court ordered debts in criminal and traffic cases that have been referred to the office.

In addition, the office administers the Douglas County Domestic Mediation Services. Whether mediation is mandatory Per Local Rule 11, or the parties are voluntarily seeking mediation, this low cost alternative is an option.
