When are the court costs and fees due to be paid? After formal arraignment? Are there payment plans for these costs?

Asked over 1 year ago - Lansdale, PA

In PA when do you pay for court costs and fees? What happens if I don't have all the money at once? Is there a payment plan?

    Answered . Only if you are found (or plea) guilty, and then only if you are ordered to pay costs. You should retain an attorney
