How to Handle a Trust Request Refund with Clio Payments


  • Reflect a refund from Trust when a Clio Payment was recorded and completed on a Trust Request
  • Refund a Trust/IOLTA secure payment link


  • Clio Manage
  • LawPay

Additional Information:

If the payment has not been completed, it can simply be voided. If not, then it will need to be refunded within LawPay. This is because payments on Trust Requests cannot be edited or deleted. For more information, please see here
