How much can you expect to pay to retrieve a Certificate of Disposition via a service?
If you have to get a Certificate of Disposition from a New York court case, you may not want to get it yourself. After all, completing the paperwork is a hassle, then going down to the court house to get the Certificate of Disposition takes up even more of your precious time.
That is why you may be thinking about hiring a service to get the certificate you need. If so, though, how much can you expect to pay to retrieve the Certificate of Disposition you need?7
What is the charge? -- Most services charge the typical fee the court house charges to retrieve a Certificate of Disposition. They also charge an additional fee to pay for their time completing the paperwork and then standing in line at the court house.
The fee will often be around $100 but, when you consider they will send a representative to the courthouse twice for each Certificate of Disposition you need -- once to apply and once to pick up the certificate -- it is money well spent.
How long does it take to get a Certificate of Disposition? -- If you pay for a service, will you get the particular Certificate of Disposition you need quicker than if you had applied for it yourself?
In some cases, yes you will as the firm that is retrieving the certificate for you already knows people at the court house. That often means they can expedite the certificate so that they are allowed to pick it up in just a couple of days rather than the week or more it may take if you did it by yourself.
The time savings alone can be worth the fee, especially if having a Certificate of Disposition is going to allow you to move faster on other aspects of your job.
