How Much Is Divorce Filing Fee In Los Angeles County
Hi, Tim Blankenship here with divorce661.com.
Today we are talking about how much is the filing fee for Los Angeles County.
This is a question I get, probably daily, if not multiple times a day about the cost. The other question is, who do I make the check payable to when I’m writing my check for the filing fee.
So the answer to question number one is, for Los Angeles County, the current filing fee for divorce is $435. That is as of April 1st 2013. This fee does go up. Just six months ago it was $395. So if you’re reading this, and say more than a year has gone by past April 1st 2013, you may want to check back for a more recent article, because I’m sure the cost will have gone up by then.
The next question is, who do I make the cheque payable to? It’s not payable to Los Angeles County, it’s payable to Clerk of the Court. So you’re going to make your cheque payable for $435, payable to Clerk of the Court. This is for Los Angeles County if you are filing for divorce; and this also applies if you’re filing a response. You are also going to have to write a cheque for $435 payable to Clerk of the Court.
So I hope this clarifies who you make your check payable to, and for how much when filing for divorce in Los Angeles County.
