Q Does Section 25-7-13 allow for payment to a circuit clerk of $35.00 for each witness sworn during a criminal term of court?

A No. The $35.00 fee provided for in Section 25-7-13(1)(b) is only for “filing and recording orders or other papers and swearing witnesses” related to a suggestion for a writ of execution and judgment debtor actions. (Attorney General’s Opinion to Alexander, January 25, 2013)
