Fee Waivers

If you are unable to afford the court fees and costs to file an appeal, you may qualify for a waiver of those costs.

Obtain an Application for Waiver of Court Fees and Costs Form from the court clerk or by downloading the Application for Waiver of Court Fees and Costs form from the Judicial Council's forms web page.

Fill out the form and submit it with your appeal form. If the judge approves your fee waiver request, your court fees will be waived.
