How much will it cost me to go to court?

There is no charge for filing the petition or for your court-appointed lawyer. However, you need to think about the cost of travel to and from the court. The clerk may question you about your financial situations assets such as job, jewelry, and trust accounts. You are not required to report this because you are a minor and would not have access to trust accounts since you are a minor. Jewelry, rings, etc, would be a gift and if you have a job the funds you receive are used to support yourself. You use this money for gas, clothes, and other necessities. So most likely you would report that you do not have any assets or money. This information is used to determine if you can afford a lawyer. If not, the court is required to appoint one at no cost to you.
