Beginning July 1, 2019 the following changes took effect.
Lack of Form Case full fee: $50
Full Fee for ALL other cases: $100
These fees are per case.
The entire fee will be due when submitting a case to the tribunal. Cases will not be opened or processed without the appropriate fee. If the petitioner is unable to submit the necessary fee it will fall upon the parish to send in the payment at time of submission or to request a reduction of fees from the tribunal.
In addition to the fee change, our office will no longer accept petitions using the olds forms. This includes the old Marital History Questionnaire. Please be certain to have the petitioner complete the updated questionnaire and submit this WITH their petition. This helps to move the process more swiftly and efficiently. Cases submitted using the old forms will be returned to the advocate requesting resubmission on the updated forms.
Each case type has an instruction sheet/checklist to aide you with everything required to send in when submitting a case to our office. Please also remember we require the forms to be with original signatures. No photocopies are accepted.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our office 316-269-3900.
