Why Must I Pay An Additional $70.00 Eviction Fee When I Have Already Filed A Writ Of Restitution To Evict The Tenant?

After the writ of restitution has been filed in the Landlord and Tenant Clerk`s Office and the U.S. Marshal has not evicted the tenant within the applicable 35 days, an additional $60.00 is required for the U.S. Marshal Fee and $10.00 for the clerk. Any questions regarding eviction procedures must be directed to the U.S. Marshal. The U.S. Marshal`s Office is located on the C level in the Main Building of the H. Carl Moultrie Courthouse. Only the court (landlord and tenant judge) may waive (set aside) the $10.00 clerk`s fee.
