IMPORTANT
This “Application for Deferral or Waiver of Court Fees and/or Costs” includes a “Consent to Entry of Judgment.”  By signing this Consent, you agree a judgment may be entered against you for all fees and costs that are deferred but remain unpaid thirty (30) calendar days after entry of final judgment.  At the conclusion of the case you will receive a Notice of Court Fees and Costs Due indicating how much is owed and what step you must take to avoid a judgment against you if you are still unable to pay. Additional details about this process are discussed in the “Consent to Entry of Judgment” section of this application.

STATEMENTS MADE TO THE COURT UNDER OATH OR AFFIRMATION.  I swear or affirm that the information in this application is true and correct.  I make this statement under the penalty of prosecution for perjury if it is determined that I did not tell the truth.

I am requesting a deferral/waiver of the fee for service of process by a sheriff, marshal, constable or law enforcement agency.


The basis for the request is:

1. [  ] DEFERRAL:

A. [  ] I receive governmental assistance from the state/federal program(s) marked below:
[  ] Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
[  ] Food Stamps (Renamed Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP).

OR
B. [  ] My income is insufficient or is barely sufficient to meet the daily essentials of life, and includes no allotment that could be budgeted for the fees and costs that are required to gain access to the court.

NOTE:  To determine whether income is insufficient or barely sufficient, the court will review your income and expenses.  Among the factors the court may consider are:
1. Whether your gross income as computed on a monthly basis is 150% or less of the current federal poverty level.  Gross monthly income includes your share of community property income if available to you.
2. If your income is greater than 150% of the poverty level, but you have proof of extraordinary expenses (including medical expenses and costs of care for elderly or disabled family members) or other expenses that the court finds are extraordinary that reduce your gross monthly income to at or below 150% of the poverty level.
OR
C. [  ] I do not have the money to pay court filing fees and/or costs now.   I can pay the filing
fees and/or costs at a later date.  Explain.

2. [  ] WAIVER:

A. [  ] I am permanently unable to pay.  My income and liquid assets are insufficient or barely sufficient to meet the daily essentials of life and unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.
B. [  ] I receive government assistance from the federal program Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

NOTE: Every applicant, regardless of his or her financial circumstances, must complete the Financial Questionnaire (below). If you submit the Application and Financial Questionnaire in person, you MUST sign it in front of the court clerk; if you submit the form by mail or by a third party, you MUST sign it in front of a notary public.

If your case is dismissed for any reason, the fees and costs are still due.

NOTICE OF COURT FEES AND COSTS DUE







When your case was filed, you requested that the court defer the court fees and costs in your case. The court granted you a deferral. A deferral means that payment was postponed and you did not have to pay all the costs and fees while your case was open. The case is now over.

Payment of court fees and costs in the amount of $                   are now due in your case. You must either pay these fees and costs or file a supplemental application for waiver or further deferral by (date)                                       .

If you do not pay or file a supplemental application by the above date, a judgment for the total amount of unpaid fees and costs will be entered against you.  The court may then take legal steps to collect the unpaid judgment.

You may make the payment or obtain and file a supplemental application at (court name, location and telephone number)
  .

In the supplemental application, if you qualify, you can ask the court for:
1. Waiver of fees and costs.  This means you never have to pay the fees and costs in this case.
2. Further deferral of fees and costs.  This means the court arranges a payment schedule.

You may also ask the court for an itemized statement of unpaid fees and costs at no cost
to you.  After reviewing the itemized statement, if you disagree with the amount owed the court, you may request a hearing. If you file a supplemental application for further deferral or waiver of the court fees and costs and the application is denied, you may request a hearing. Supplemental applications or forms to request a hearing are available online at: or
at   the following court locations:

Name of Respondent/Defendant.

STATE OF ARIZONA         )
COUNTY OF ) ss.

IMPORTANT
This “Application for Deferral or Waiver of Court Fees and/or Costs” includes a “Consent to Entry of Judgment.”  By signing this Consent, you agree a judgment may be entered against you for all fees and costs that are deferred but remain unpaid thirty (30) calendar days after entry of final judgment.  At the conclusion of the case you will receive a Notice of Court Fees and Costs Due indicating how much is owed and what step you must take to avoid a judgment against you if you are still unable to pay. Additional details about this process are discussed in the “Consent to Entry of Judgment” section of this application.

STATEMENTS MADE TO THE COURT UNDER OATH OR AFFIRMATION.  I swear or affirm that the information in this application is true and correct.  I make this statement under the penalty of prosecution for perjury if it is determined that I did not tell the truth.

I am requesting a deferral/waiver of the fee for service of process by a sheriff, marshal, constable or law enforcement agency.


The basis for the request is:

1. [  ] DEFERRAL:

A. [  ] I receive governmental assistance from the state/federal program(s) marked below:
[  ] Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
[  ] Food Stamps (Renamed Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP).

OR
B. [  ] My income is insufficient or is barely sufficient to meet the daily essentials of life, and includes no allotment that could be budgeted for the fees and costs that are required to gain access to the court.

NOTE:  To determine whether income is insufficient or barely sufficient, the court will review your income and expenses.  Among the factors the court may consider are:
1. Whether your gross income as computed on a monthly basis is 150% or less of the current federal poverty level.  Gross monthly income includes your share of community property income if available to you.
2. If your income is greater than 150% of the poverty level, but you have proof of extraordinary expenses (including medical expenses and costs of care for elderly or disabled family members) or other expenses that the court finds are extraordinary that reduce your gross monthly income to at or below 150% of the poverty level.
OR
C. [  ] I do not have the money to pay court filing fees and/or costs now.   I can pay the filing
fees and/or costs at a later date.  Explain.

2. [  ] WAIVER:

A. [  ] I am permanently unable to pay.  My income and liquid assets are insufficient or barely sufficient to meet the daily essentials of life and unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.
B. [  ] I receive government assistance from the federal program Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

NOTE: Every applicant, regardless of his or her financial circumstances, must complete the Financial Questionnaire (below). If you submit the Application and Financial Questionnaire in person, you MUST sign it in front of the court clerk; if you submit the form by mail or by a third party, you MUST sign it in front of a notary public. You must submit proof that you receive governmental assistance. If you submit the Application and Financial Questionnaire by mail or by a third party, please attach a copy of your proof of governmental assistance.

If your case is dismissed for any reason, the fees and costs are still due.

If a consent judgment is signed and the applicant pays the fees and costs in full, the court is required to comply with the provisions of A.R.S. § 33-964(C).

DUTY TO REPORT CHANGE IN FINANCIAL CIRCUMSTANCES.  An applicant who is granted a deferral or waiver shall promptly notify the court of any change in financial circumstances during the pendency of the case that would affect the applicant’s ability to pay court fees and costs.   Any time the applicant appears before the court on this case, the court may inquire as to the applicant’s financial circumstances.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
