Can't Afford Court Filing Fees?

If you can’t afford to pay filing fees, you may ask the court to waive those costs. This video is an overview of that two-step process: (1) waiving pre-payment fees before your case can begin, and (2) waiving final fees at the end of your case. This video does NOT talk about waivers of appeal costs. If you have an appeal case, see the video titled Can’t Afford Appellate Costs?
