There are court fees and costs associated to file documents with the Court. Most case types require a filing fee and/or have other related costs (for example: court reporter fee, making and certifying copies, Sheriff’s fee to give notice, etc.). The fee schedule is available here. However, if you cannot afford to pay the filing fees and other costs, you may file a fee waiver to ask the court to waive the fees related to your case.
