Estimated Costs for Transcripts

This chart is for estimation purposes only 

Only the transcript agency can provide you with the actual cost of your transcript. 

NOTE: An order granting relief to proceed as an indigent does not entitle you to transcripts at public expense. Transcripts at public expense are typically granted only in criminal cases where the defendant qualifies for that relief. For additional questions, please contact your case manager.

Do not expect to receive transcripts at public expense for a civil or family appeal

  • The above calculations are based on the current page rates (as Set by NJ Statute 2B:7-4) which are effective through July 1, 2025. 

  • An agency will not begin work on your transcript until they receive the estimated cost from the ordering party. 

  • The cost for a transcript is based upon the estimated number of pages that will comprise the final transcript. A refund or balance due will be settled upon completion of a transcript (R. 2:5-3(d)).
