More Pay to Play in Court

June 11, 2014

‚ÄčThe Idaho Legislature passed a bill implementing electronic filing and access to court documents this session. To pay for this new court technology system, beginning on July 1, 2014, various court filing fees will signficantly increase. Initial civil case filing fees will increase from $96 to $221; probate filings will go up from $96 to $166; and fees for notices of appearance will increase from $66 to $166. 

Almost 1700 new cases are filed each day in Idaho state courts. The new system will allow electronic filing 24 hours a day in any court of the state. Court documents will be available for anyone to review over the internet. Twin Falls County will be the first to implement the system and then Ada County will be next to adopt the system.
