How much does it cost to file a dispossessory action?

If you are suing someone you must pay a filing fee and a service fee. Court costs are county specific. The Sheriff’s Department must serve the defendant the Complaint and Summons. (Example: sue one Defendant - you pay one filing fee and one service fee; two Defendants - you pay one filing fee and two service fees, etc.). At the Judge's discretion, if you win the case, the person you sue typically reimburses any court costs.
