NOTICE OF COURT FEES AND COSTS 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:
