[2] If the value of the property is more than $5,000, the filing fee is the fee in GC 70611.

* Fees marked with an asterisk will vary in the counties of Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Francisco because of a local surcharge for courthouse construction.  The fees in those counties are shown in the appendix.

 

[3] This is a processing fee “for making up and transmitting the transcript and papers” when venue in a case is changed.  The motion fee under GC 70617 is charged separately for a motion for change of venue.

[4] This column shows the fee under GC 70613.5 for a filing increasing the amount at issue in a limited civil case from $10,000 or less to more than $10,000. The fee reflects the incremental amount that the first paper fee for a case with more than $10,000 at issue exceeds the first paper fee for a case with $10,000 or less at issue.

[5] These uniform filing fees apply to both first paper filings and response filings in limited, unlimited, family law and probate cases.

[6] Under the Uniform Civil Fee legislation, the standard distributions to the State Court Facilities Construction Fund are $20, $25 and $35 depending on the level and type of filing.  In Riverside, San Bernardino and San Francisco the distribution to the SCFCF is reduced to offset, to the extent possible, the local courthouse construction surcharge.

[7] In Riverside the maximum surcharge allowed by statute is $50 under GC 70622.  As of January 1, 2009, the surcharge is $50 for all cases.

[8] In San Bernardino the maximum surcharge allowed by statute is $35, which is applied to all first paper filings. (GC 70624.)

[9] In San Francisco the maximum surcharge allowed by statute is $50.  $10 is applied to limited civil cases and $50 to other first paper filings. (GC 70625.)

[10] These amounts incorporate the additional $15 fee under CCP 1161.2 charged to plaintiffs in limited civil unlawful detainer cases.

[11] This column shows the fee under GC 70613.5 for a filing increasing the amount at issue in a limited civil case filed by an assignee (with declaration) from within the small claims jurisdictional limit to more than $10,000. The fee reflects the incremental amount that the first paper fee for a limited civil case with more than $10,000 at issue exceeds the first paper fee for a case with declarations with less than $5,000 at issue.

[15] In San Francisco the maximum surcharge allowed by statute is $50.  $10 is applied to limited civil cases and $50 to other first paper filings. (GC 70625.)

[1] These amounts incorporate the additional $15 fee under CCP 1161.2 charged to plaintiffs in limited civil unlawful detainer cases.

[1] This column shows the fee under GC 70613.5 for a filing increasing the amount at issue in a limited civil case filed by an assignee (with declaration) from within the small claims jurisdictional limit to more than $10,000. The fee reflects the incremental amount that the first paper fee for a limited civil case with more than $10,000 at issue exceeds the first paper fee for a case with declarations with less than $5,000 at issue.
