Non-Certified copies are $0.10 per page. Certifed copies are $5.00 per page.
A charge of $0.10 per page of copied records will be accessed and/or a processing fee for staff time spent in research and retrieval of requested records over 15 minutes shall be applied.

Should the requester ask that the court mail the records to him/her, the requester will need to provide a self-addressed stamped envelope so we can mail the documents back to you.
