2015 ORS 21.692¹
Judgment for deferred fees and court costs

(1) In courts other than justice courts and county courts, fees and court costs deferred under ORS 21.680 (Definitions for ORS 21.680 to 21.698) to 21.698 (Confidentiality of information related to waiver or deferral) constitute a monetary obligation of the obligor that is payable to the state. In justice courts and county courts, fees and court costs deferred under ORS 21.680 (Definitions for ORS 21.680 to 21.698) to 21.698 (Confidentiality of information related to waiver or deferral) constitute a monetary obligation of the obligor that is payable to the county in which the justice court or county court is located. The court may render a judgment in favor of the state or county for any unpaid part of the obligation. A limited or supplemental judgment may be rendered for the obligation, or the obligation may be included in the general judgment in an action or proceeding. If the court renders a limited judgment for the obligation, the money award may be only for unpaid fees and court costs and may not include any other financial obligation. A court administrator may sign a judgment for deferred fees and costs on behalf of the court.

(2) A court may render a limited or supplemental judgment for unpaid deferred fees or costs, or include a money award for the obligation in a general judgment, without further notice to the obligor or further order of the court.

(3) An obligor subject to a judgment for unpaid fees and court costs may move for relief from the judgment based on a showing that the obligor’s financial circumstances have changed since the time of the entry of the judgment such that the obligor is no longer able to pay the judgment amount. A motion for relief under this subsection must be made in the manner provided by ORCP 71 and must be made within one year after the judgment containing the money award is entered. [2007 c.493 §5]
