FEDEX COSTSBeginning January 1st, 2023, The Clerk of Courts will begin adding FedEx mailing costs to cases that have requested service issued via FedEx. These costs will be created directly from the FedEx invoices the Clerk of Courts receives on a weekly basis. The FedEx cost for service will be reduced by the $10.00 charged with the Instructions for Service. The true cost for service will be reflected on the final cost bill.
You may file for an expungement of a criminal case one year after your conviction date. However, if your case was dismissed you do not need to wait a year from dismissal date to file for an expungement. You must also have no other violations on your record. Traffic records cannot be expunged. There is a $50 fee to file for an expungement.
