No child may be denied diversion based on his or her parents’ or guardians’ inability to pay. Your diversion fee may be reduced or waived based on your income. If you believe you may qualify for a reduced fee, you must fill out the financial statement at your diversion meeting.
Our financial screener will review these documents and determine your ability to pay based on the federal poverty guidelines. The financial screener will assess a fee and bill you the assessed amount. You can make up to four monthly payments on your assessed fee. If your fee is waived, you will not receive a bill.
