How much shall I pay?

The application fee, which is SEK 900 as from 1 July 2014, constitutes the total amount for the procedure.

What happens if I do not pay the court fees on time?

If you do not pay the application fee, after you have been asked to complete the application by providing payment, the case will be dismissed and the court will not examine your claim. It is possible to submit a new claim in relation to the same matter following a dismissal.

How can I pay the court fees?

You can pay the application fee either in cash or by card payment at the reception of the court or via the court’s PlusGiro account. You can find contact information for the court and details of the account number Link opens in new windowhere.

What shall I do after the payment?

After making the payment, you do not need to take any other action and as a general rule you do not need to provide proof of payment. The court matches the payments made to the claims that have been submitted to the court. In order to make it easier to match your claim to your payment, make sure that you state your full name and the opposing party’s full name when you make the payment. Always save the payment confirmation, as this can be used to track a payment if necessary.
