Expungement fee increases part of changes to DeKalb County Circuit Court

Expungement fees increased by $127

DeKalb County Circuit Clerk Lori Grubbs, right, talks to the Dekalb County Law and Justice Committee on Monday, Feb. 27, 2023 about her request to change two court fees.

“I think bringing our fees in line with what other counties are doing is definitely something that we want to make sure that we’re really in line with. I understand the purpose and I think that that purpose makes sense to me.”
