The legislature passed HB 125 in the Winter 2019 legislative general session. The bill updated some, but not all, areas of statutes where filing fees are set. It also had some technical inconsistencies in the few sections it did address. Last, it also had a section making an exception for state agencies until 7/1/20. This resulted in a more varied set of fees than we had previously and the nuances that are described below.

Petitions for District Court Review of Agency Action fees are $110

  • $110

Total fees due to District Court for lower court appeals to District Court remain $85.

  • This payment is submitted to the lower court when the Notice of Appeal is filed there. 
  • The lower court clerk forwards the District Court fee when they notify the District Court that their record is certified as complete.

*Total District Court fees for filing a Notice of Appeal to WY Supreme Court are $85.

  • Second fee payable to WY Supreme Court is still $110.
