Electronic Filing Fee

Effective March, 1, 2016, the Court is required to collect an "electronic filing system fee" of $25 for all civil actions filed in the circuit and probate courts in addition to the $150 filing fee. The $25 electronic filing system fee is charged on all civil actions which the State defines as all cases with the exception of a “criminal case, civil infraction action, a proceeding commenced in the probate court under section 3982 of the estates and protected individuals code, 1988 PA 386, MCL 700.3982, or a proceeding involving a juvenile under chapter XIIA of the probate code of 1939, 1939 PA 288, MCL 712A.1 to 712 A.32.”

This is a mandatory fee required by the State pursuant to MCL 600.1986. Our court does not keep any of this fee. The State is collecting this fee to build a statewide e-filing portal. Until that portal is built and the SCAO approves our use of that portal, our court will not have e-filing. If the court waives the filing fee because of indigency or inability to pay, the court is instructed to also waive the electronic system filing fee.
