2nd Round of Increased Court Costs in North Carolina

A second round of increased court costs and fees will go into effect on August 1, 2011. 

As a result of the passage of HB 200, HB 642, and HB 22, court costs will increase for the second month in a row.  The increase will primarily affect court costs and fines associated with criminal and traffic violations.  Assuming that there are no changes in legislation in the mean time, a third round of court cost changes are scheduled to to go into effect in December of this year.
