Misdemeanor Fee Information


Refunds and Waivers

Please be aware that most Fees cannot be refunded. Filing Fees pay for the services provided by the Travis County Clerk’s Office and are required by law. Even if you have filed your case in the wrong venue or jurisdiction or if you have not prevailed in your case before the court, the services you requested of the Clerk were provided at the time the case was filed. Fees paid for services that have not yet been provided — for instance, the service of a citation or certified copies of an order — may sometimes be refunded. If no attempt has been made to serve a citation, the Fees you paid may be refunded by that constable’s office.
