Effective August 15, 2017: Small Claims filing fees will increase to $29.00. This new increase is a result of King County Ordinance 18545 which increased the Small Claims Dispute Resolution Surcharge from $11 to $15. This surcharge funds dispute resolution centers which provide affordable mediation and conflict resolution services.
