Using the proper form is critical to processing your court action. Often more than one form will be needed to process your case.
Many forms need to be signed in front of a notary public. Also be aware of the implications of signing a form. You may want to check with a lawyer before putting your signature on a document.
The amount of a fee will vary depending on your case. Fee "schedules" are published in the court rules.
Fees may be paid with cash, money order and personal check.
In some circumstances, it may be possible to ask the court to waive a portion of the filing fee.
