Los Angeles Superior Court Filing Fees Increase

Los Angeles Superior Court (LASC) and all other California counties' filing fees are being increased, in accordance with a series of budget bills just signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. Each court system may implement the new civil case fee schedule at different times; LASC has not made the switch yet, but is expected to shortly.

Of interest to many will be the following:

Unlimited civil case and unlimited unlawful detainer case ($25,000+ demanded) filing fee increases from $395 to $435;

Answer or first responsive pleading filed by defendant in an unlimited civil case filing fee increases from $395 to $435; and

Probate filing fee (letter of administration or letters testamentary) and probate objection/contest filing fee each increase from $395 to $435.
