(b) A probation department may petition a court to:
(1) impose a probation user's fee on a person; or
(2) increase a person's probation user's fee;
under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter if the financial ability of the person to pay a probation user's fee changes while the person is on probation.

(1) is a judgment lien that:
(A) attaches to the property of the person subject to the order;
(B) may be perfected;
(C) may be enforced to satisfy any payment that is delinquent under section 1 or 1.5 of this chapter; and
in the same manner as a judgment lien created in a civil proceeding;

(3) is not discharged by the liquidation of a person's estate by a receiver under IC 32-30-5.

to either the probation department or the clerk of the court.
