How much does it cost?

You must pay the court clerk a filing fee at the time the suit is filed. Douglas County District Court’s filing fee is $50. You may have some additional fees payable to the sheriff or process server to have the Notice of Small Claims served on the defendant. As an alternative, you may serve notice on the defendant by registered or certified, return receipt mailing. If you win your case, you are entitled to recover your costs of filing and service fees.
