How much does it cost to serve a Small Claims SC-100?
The fee is determined by the manner of service and whether or not it is a Routine Service
. If you submit your job with more than 30 days prior to the hearing
date, the SC-100
can be Substitute Served
. The fee for Substitute service is $125
per defendant/party, per service address. The fee for Substitute Service is less than Personal Service Only because it takes less effort to accomplish. If you wait too long and submit the documents with less than 30 days prior to the hearing
, but more than 15 days prior to the hearing
, the SC-100 must be Personally Served
. The fee for Personal Service Only is $150
. So don't wait, submit your SC-100 for service as soon as you file it with the court.
