What is an area surcharge?

An Area Surcharge is where we charge a little more for locations that are remote from our branches as well as courts that may have longer than standard wait times.  To see if a courthouse or process serving location is in an area that requires an area surcharge, please do the following:

  • Visit the Pricing & Deadlines page.  
  • Click on the Service Directory.
  • Select your state and scroll to the designed product (Court Filing, eFiling, Research, Courtesy Copy Delivery or Process Serving) and View Results. The price you’ll see in the right-hand column is in addition to our base-price.
