Effective March 1, 2016
A $25 Electronic System Fee is in effect. This fee is paid at the time of case initiation by the party commencing a civil action.* The term civil action is defined under MCL 600.1985 and excludes criminal cases, appeals, civil infraction actions, proceedings commenced in the Probate Court under MCL 700.3982, and proceedings involving juveniles under Chapter 12A of the Probate Code (MCL 712A.1, et seq.)
*If a filing fee is waived due to indigency or inability to pay, the electronic system fee will also be waived. A party that is a government entity is exempt from paying the electronic system fee.
