Is there a fee to file or serve an injunction against harassment?

There is no fee when you file for an injunction but there could be a fee for serving the injunction on the defendant. However, there is no fee for service of the petition if the petition alleges that there was a dating relationship or sexual violence.1 The cost for service varies depending on the mileage involved and the number of attempts needed to attempt service. Some people may be able to get the service fee deferred or waived by the court. If you are a low-income person, be sure to tell this to the court and ask how to apply to get the fee waived.2
