Oregon State Court Fees Change July 1, 2009

By

See the explanatory memo at the Oregon State Bar (OSB):

Effective July 1, 2009, some state court filing fees will change due to 2007 legislative changes that become effective July 1, 2009, and the extension of the temporary filing fee surcharges through September 30, 2009, as provided in a 2009 legislative bill (HB 2287B). The Oregon Judicial Department has more information here.

For circuit courts, there is no single circuit court fee schedule, because circuit court fees vary by county depending on local fee assessments. If a court has not posted its fee schedule on its webpage, contact the court directly for information….” (Link to full OSB announcement)

AND link to more information at the Oregon Judicial Department:

“…Before filing papers in a state court on or after July 1, 2009, please check the court’s website or contact the court for correct fee amounts.

In addition, the 2009 legislation (HB 2287B) results in other new fees and fee changes that will take effect October 1, 2009. Information on those forthcoming changes will be posted at a later date.” (Link to OJD announcement)

Note: Fees are changing as a result of 2007 and 2009 legislative actions, so don’t get confused when you see references to 2007 and/or 2009 notices.

The bottom line is: Check with the court where you file your case!!!
