* Additional Fees (Optional)
After we file your petition and get it approved for $129, you will no
longer need our help in filing documents to the court as you can file them
yourself by contacting the district clerks office. However if you want us
to file any documents to court after petition is approved, our standard
eFiling cost of $19.98 per filing applies. The reason we charge this fee is
because we have to convert your scanned documents to PDF and also fix the
PDF as per court requirements.
Who qualifies for FEE waiver?
Anyone can file a fee waiver request, but generally, if one of the
following applies, your fee waiver will be granted:
- You are currently eligible for government
assistance [such as AFDC, TANF, food stamps, etc.]
- Your household income that is 125% or less
than the current poverty level as established by the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services.
If neither of those applies, you must show the court that paying the filing
fee would result in a substantial hardship due to your current financial
situation. Depending on the state and judge, you will be asked to provide
paystubs and other documentation of income, usually between 2 to 12 months'
