Note: Data Processing is figured into the total cost. Therefore, when charging the $107.00 dollar fee, this would be $98.00 to clerk and $4.00 to Data Processing and $5.00 Archive fee; Traffic citation fees $40.00 clerk and $4.00 D.P. plus $5.00 Archive fee; Juvenile $60.00 to clerk and $4.00 D.P. and $5.00 for Archive fee and $4.00 for Judicial Commissioners.
The Archive fee is a one time fee like the Data Processing fee. This is only charged when a new case is started, not on a second or third petition.
