2. Court Service Fee
Jurisdictions MAY elect to collect a Court Service Fee for accepting eFilings. Many jurisdictions such as the appellate courts, Dallas District, Travis District, Denton District, and Hidalgo District do not collect a jurisdiction (convenience) fee. A $2.00 Court Service fee is the norm in most jurisdictions.
3. eFiling Manager Convenience Fee
eFiling Manager charges a 2.89% credit card processing fee on the total of all fees for the filing. Since the jurisdictions cannot pay this fee it is charged to the filer.
No fees are charged when an electronic filing is rejected by the Court Clerk.
