The Trusteeship Division helps individuals organize debt repayment. In order to file for trusteeship, an individual must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a judgment against them and a current 15-day notice
  • Live or work within the City of Toledo

Trusteeship can help a debtor prevent proceedings in attachment, in aid of execution, and other actions subjecting the personal earnings of the debtor to payment of obligations.

Once the trusteeship forms are completed, the Clerk of Court's Trusteeship Division will collect 25% of the debtor's gross wages minus taxes per pay period. When $600 accumulates, the money is distributed to all listed creditors on a percentage basis. This process continues until all creditors are paid.

The telephone number for the Trusteeship Division of the Clerk's Office is (419) 936-3650. The Trusteeship Division is open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
