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

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?

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

Costs and fees are due if ordered after a finding of guilt. Payment plans are routinely offered.

I agree with bith responses you've received thus far. No financial obligations arise until there is a conviction. Payment plans are routine.
