7-5-22 NOTICE REGARDING FEE CHANGE FOR NEW CASE FILINGS
IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS AND MUNICIPAL COURT

Due to State budget issues, the temporary surcharge portion of the Judicial Computer Project/Access to Justice/Criminal Justice Enhancement/Office of Attorney General (JCP/ATJ/CJEA/OAG) fee that was authorized has expired. As a result, the surcharge of $21.25 on all new cases will no longer be collected. This means the fee for all new cases filed in the Civil (Municipal Court and Court of Common Pleas), Family, and Orphans' Court Divisions would be decreased by $21.25.

Please note that this fee may be reinstated in the very near future. If reinstated, a new notice will be published, and the fees will be adjusted accordingly.
