Restitution-Related Court Forms

A Judgment of Sentence containing the restitution order can be used to collect payments from the defendant’s wages or other income paid to the defendant on a regular basis by filing the Request and Writ for Garnishment (Periodic), Form MC 12. To collect payments from the defendant’s checking, savings, or other account, use the Request and Writ for Garnishment (Non-Periodic), Form MC 13. To collect payments from the defendant’s income tax refund or credit if there is one available, use the Request and Writ for Garnishment (Income Tax/Credit), Form MC 52. These forms should be filed in the court that issued the Judgment of Sentence.

Restitution orders remain in effect until fully satisfied, therefore restitution may be collected from the assets of the defendant’s estate after his or her death. To do this, file a Statement and Proof of Claim, Form PC579, in the Probate Court of the county in which the defendant died.
