There is no fee for proceedings for admission and commitment of individuals under the mental health code, except for matters affecting an estate from other than public sources.
After filing of the initial petition, there are no $20.00 fees where the ward is petitioner or moving party (guardianship and conservatorship).
There are no fees where the petitioner or moving party is indigent or has an inability to pay.  Procedures for determining indigency are appropriate for local administrative rule.  See also PDF IconWaiver/Suspension of Fees and Costs (Affidavit and Order) - MC20
