Court Costs
In order to initiate a divorce, legal separation, annulment or paternity case, the Los Angeles Superior Court requires a fee of $395.00 per party.
For a court hearing for temporary orders including child custody, child support or spousal support, attorney’s fees or any other issues, the Court requires a fee of about $40.00 in Los Angeles County. In certain circumstances when a party is considered “low income", the court can waive these initial costs. However, the majority of individuals are expected to pay their own court costs.
