On July 1, 2021, the Knox County Circuit, Chancery, Probate, Juvenile and General Civil Sessions Court Clerk’s offices will be using the schedule of fees included in T.C.A. 8-21-401 for all fees and court costs. The courts’ fees had previously been controlled by T.C.A. 8-21-409. The Tennessee General Assembly passed a bill deleting that code - effective July 1, 2021 - during the current legislative session. The change brings the fees charged by all Knox County courts into alignment with the other 94 counties in the State of Tennessee.

The revised fee schedules, except for juvenile court, can be reviewed at the respective webpages of the Knox County Circuit Court Clerk and the Knox County Chancery Court at https://knoxcounty.org/circuit/ and https://knoxcounty.org/chancery/.
Copies of the new fee schedules are also available at the clerk’s offices.
One significant difference is that under T.C.A. 8-21-401 costs are charged and collected at the time the services are requested, except as otherwise provided in the code.
