Supeona Question

My custody case is getting ready to go to trial. My question is how much is it to supeona witnesses and how much notice are they required to be given by law?

There is no cost for subpoenas to be issued. However, some witnesses (such as doctors, therapists, private investigators, and other professionals) will charge a fee for their time preparing for testimony, being in court, etc.).

There is no minimum notice requirement however, subpoenas must be served by sheriff deputy or certified/registered mail, so you must allow time for that. The sooner you can subpoena a witness the better.
