A District Court filing fee is required. If you are unable to pay, you must complete a Motion to File Without Payment and Supporting Financial Affidavit and Order and submit it to the District Court at the time you file your Notice of Appeal and Designation of Record. The District Court will decide if you need to pay the filing fee.
Transcribers charge $3.00 per page for transcripts. A transcript deposit of $200 must be paid to County Court at the time you file your appeal. If the transcript will be more than $200, the transcriber will contact you for the additional monies. The transcript will not be completed until the money is paid to the transcriber. Supreme Court Chief Justice Directive 98-01 states that transcript fees in civil matters cannot be waived for indigent persons.
If you wish to have a copy of the transcript you must pay $.75 per page.
Other fees you may encounter are a certification fee and $.25 per page for copies of documents.
You will be required to post an appeal bond in Count Court when you file your appeal. The amount of the bond varies and will be decided by the Judge.
