Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein

Check Resolution Program

This program facilitates check hearings between merchants and check writers whose checks have been returned for insufficient funds. These hearings attempt to resolve the situation without criminal charges being filed against the check writer. For more information, please view our online booklet, found here.

If you are a merchant and have an interest in joining, please contact the Check Resolution Program Coordinator, Barbara Williams, at (614) 645-8840 or
