Notice of State Court Filing Fee Changes
Effective July 1, 2009


Effective July 1, 2009, some state court filing fees will change due to 2007 legislative changes that become effective July 1, 2009, and the extension of the temporary filing fee surcharges through September 30, 2009, as provided in a 2009 legislative bill (HB 2287B).

Before filing papers in a state court on or after July 1, 2009, please check the court's website or contact the court for correct fee amounts.

In addition, the 2009 legislation (HB 2287B) results in other new fees and fee changes that will take effect October 1, 2009. Information on those forthcoming changes will be posted at a later date.

For circuit courts, there is no single circuit court fee schedule, because circuit court fees vary by county depending on local fee assessments. Please check the website for the court where you plan to file. If the court has not posted its fee schedule on its webpage, then contact the court directly for information.
