M.
Amount of Restitution
Check the applicable boxes a through e that specify why the

Order for Victim Restitution (form CR-110/JV-790) is the court order or judgment directing the offender to repay you for any losses that
you suffered because of the offense. Once this judgment is entered in the court records, you may use it to collect the money you are
owed from the offender. If the court does not give you a certified copy of the order, ask the clerk for one and check to make sure the
judgment is entered. If the offender does not pay you, you have several options, including getting the offender to pay you voluntarily,
getting more information about the offender, and collecting from the offender's property. If you choose to try to collect from the value of
real estate owned by the offender, you will need to record an abstract of the judgment with the county recorder in the county where the
property is located. For more information about this process, see Abstract of Judgment—Restitution (form CR-111/JV-791) and
Instructions: Abstract of Judgment—Restitution (form CR-113/JV-793). For more information about this and other options for collecting
your restitution judgment, see the California Courts Online Self-Help Center at www.courts.ca.gov/1014.htm.
