1.5 Post-Decree Motions and Filings - Amended (05/14/2012)
On the filing of any post-decree motion, except for those listed herein below, the party filing the motion must pay a filing fee of $125.00, regardless of any custody or child support issues.
The Court of Domestic Relations will exempt the following motions from payment of a filing fee:
§ Motion for Continuance
§ Motion for In Camera Interview
§ Motion to Mitigate
§ Motion to Set Aside Magistrate’s Order
§ Motion to Withdraw as Counsel
§ Motion to Compel
If a party asserts that they are indigent and unable to pay the $125.00 filing fee, a poverty affidavit will be required at the time of the filing. The court will undertake a further review of the issue of costs at the hearing on the motion and make a final determination regarding payment.
A filing fee will not be required for any pre-decree motions or pre- or post- decree Objections to Magistrate’s Decisions.
